On the Colchester vs Jersey zoo hoofstock cup thread I was struck by how relatively few species Jersey zoo actually keep and how much better this is in my opinion than the average zoo with its ABC collection crammed full of species that serve no real purpose being there. The majority of the species Jersey keep tend to be of conservation concern and strongly reflect and highlight the Durrell Trusts commitment to important ex-situ and in-situ conservation around the world. It seems that the zoo really goes for quality over quantity in terms of its collection and that this philosophy is ingrained in the ethos and organizational culture. That said, I'm sure I'm not alone in thinking that the current collection at Jersey could possibly benefit from some new additions of species or replacing some of the few species kept that are not of any conservation concern (i.e. meerkats and Asian short claw otters). What species would you like to see arrive at Jersey zoo and why ? Look forward to hearing your replies !
