Something wild is coming to Jersey this summer! Jersey Zoo is celebrating it’s 60th birthday with ‘Go Wild Gorillas’, a wild and wonderful sculpture trail around Jersey. Follow the trail to discover 40 life-sized gorilla sculptures dotted around Jersey’s wild spaces, brought to life by the imagination of local and international artists. The sculptures will inhabit Jersey’s streets and wild spaces, leading the curious to stunning panoramas and insta-worthy spots. As you explore and discover Jersey’s wild side, see if you can spot our very own #theislandbreak gorilla!

 

Take a walk on the wild side from 27 July 2019!

THE ADVENTURE BEGINS

GO WILD GORILLAS

Brightly coloured, artist imagined, life-size gorilla sculptures will be placed across the island and will lead people on a trail of discovery, not only to see the gorillas themselves, but the nature in which they are placed. Watch the video to find out more and how you can donate below!

A WORD FROM OUR ARTIST

MEET LAUREN

"I worked closely with Visit Jersey on my Gorilla design, developing an idea that showed glimpses of what the Island has to offer in its various forms; from the amazing variety of fresh food, to revitalising outdoor experiences, or just the simple joy of relaxing on one of its many beautiful beaches. Jersey has so many stories to tell, and the idea of creating an illustrated map of the island gave me the opportunity to capture the colour and beauty of island life, all in one image."

TAKE A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE

Reconnect with nature

Nature’s never far away in Jersey. For a small island Jersey is full of natural, wild spaces where you can reconnect and experience nature at its best. From the wide open spaces of the Coastal National Park spanning Jersey’s west coast to the wild heights of the north coast and the low tide lunar landscape uncovered by the island’s tides, Jersey has some rare natural habitats and unique wildlife that are just waiting to be discovered.
