520    The conservationist whose work inspired Masterpiece 
       production The Durrells in Corfu recounts the early years 
       of the Durrell Wildlife Park. At the age of six, Gerald 
       Durrell confidently told his mother he would one day have 
       his own zoo. She told him it was a lovely idea and 
       promptly forgot all about it. But the young naturalist's 
       passion wasn't about to fade away any time soon. Written 
       for the Durrell Wildlife Park's twenty-fifth anniversary, 
       The Ark's Anniversary is the unconventional story of how 
       one man's dream was transformed into the esteemed 
       organization known today as the Durrell Wildlife 
       Conservation Trust, dedicated to saving endangered species
       from extinction. In the beginning, everyone thought 
       Durrell was crazy to place a zoo on the island of Jersey 
       in the English Channel. But that didn't stop people from 
       coming to see him and his menagerie of rare and exotic 
       animals, including celebrities like Richard Adams, 
       Princess Grace, David Niven (who presided over the wedding
       of two apes), and Princess Anne (who wrote the foreword to
       this book). The Ark's Anniversary is a delightful journey 
       and a celebration of success for anyone who loves the 
       natural world. This ebook features an illustrated 
       biography of Gerald Durrell including rare photos from the
       author's estate.
