Rescued Rare Reptiles Become Trinity Residents

Jersey Zoo have saved three rare species of reptiles following an oil spill in Mauritius.

Conservationists from Durrell have helped in an emergency rescue of endangered reptiles following the recent Wakashio oil spill.

On the 25th of July, cargo ship the MV Wakashio leaked 1,000 tonnes of fuel into the ocean, just a few kilometres away from nature reserves and national parks.

Home to a variety of unique species ranging from animals to plants, Durrell says the environmental catastrophe could devastate half a century of conservation work.
