Durrell Tortoise Takeover

Tortoise Takeover was an island-wide, public art trail that brings together every part of Jersey's community and in turn, protect some of the most threatened species on the planet.

In 2023, dozens of uniquely designed tortoise sculptures took over Jersey's wild places, coastal vistas and urban hangouts as ambassadors for all the work that Durrell undertakes with reptiles across the globe.

The Tortoise Trail raised £720,500 that will go towards building a new Reptile and Amphibian House at Jersey Zoo. The Durrell team has an exciting vision for a Tropical House that will allow them to continue the exemplary care they provide for these precious species.

We sponsored two tortoises in the trail. A Giant tortoise, created by Hannah Jayne Lewin, which was displayed at St Martin's Village Green, and a second Young tortoise, as we joined forces with long-term partners Acorn Enterprises.

As Acorn got to grips with transforming their Young tortoise, which we were delighted to sponsor, it was great to see this collaboration go from strength to strength.

We helped capture this transformation on camera, and we were all equally excited to see how this Young tortoise's unique story unfolded over social media.
