Actor Henry Cavill is happy with the achievements of Durrell Wildlife Conservation. 8 species of animals moved away from extinction.
Thus, Henry Cavill has published a new message to his followers and to people worried about endangered animals on his charity website CavillConservation.com. There, he explains why supporting Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust is worth your time.
“Obviously, I am extremely proud of my home Island of Jersey. Even more so when I learn that the spiritual home that I share with my chosen wildlife charity has made a larger impact on the natural world than even I imagined.
A recently published scientific paper that measures the impact of conservation on the 63 species of animals that have been moved away from extinction (according to the IUCN Redlist), shows that 8 of those species – 12% – are the subject of Durrell-led conservation programmes.
No other organisation can currently claim a higher number or percentage.”
**Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust is a conservation organisation with a mission to save species from extinction. Gerald Durrell founded the Jersey Wildlife Preservation Trust as a charitable institution in 1963 with the dodo as its symbol.
“Each day had a tranquility a timelessness about it so that you wished it would never end. But then the dark skin of the night would peel off and there would be a fresh day waiting for us glossy and colorful as a child’s transfer and with the same tinge of unreality.” Gerald Durrell, My Family and Other Animals.
** Cavill gained international fame playing the titular superhero Superman in the 2013 reboot film Man of Steel, which became a commercial success and the highest-grossing Superman film of all time, a role that he will be reprising in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League.
