As an ambassador for serious social and environmental causes, actor Henry Cavill announces the events and campaigns of Durrell Widlife Conservation Trust and the Royal Marines Charity, to help fund collections that are reverted to various projects.
The main highlights of the causes, in the week, you remember now:
Durrell‘s Networking Week Started with the award-winning Best Visit Attraction Award given to Durrell’s Jersey Zoo by the Jersey Style Awards.
The Park, which, in addition to caring for animals, also develops continuous activities for visitors to learn more about environmental preservation, has received well-deserved recognition at the award celebrating the culture, art and lifestyle of Jersey Island.
Another highlight of the week was the donation of a table at the Rainforest Ball. The event will take place on September 16 at the Royal Jersey Showground and will feature a special dinner and a performance by Take That, all reverted back to Durrell Conservation, for species conservation (focus is on orangutans).
An anonymous donor – who will not be able to attend the event – donated the table he had bought to be auctioned, as all entries are sold out, this was the last chance to participate. With a seat for 10 people, and an initial bid of ₤ 5,000, bids occurred June 26-30 but the result has not yet been released.
In the Durrell archive this week, the memoir was a photo of Gerald and Lee Durrell with Durrell Academy students on a DESMAN (Durrell Endangered Species Management) course at the conservation academy.

Closing the week Durrell’s page warned about the illegal trade of species on the internet, especially that of tortoises such as Plowshare, the world’s most endangered species.
One study identified 88 selling advertisements, of 126 tortoises, by 49 vendors. This practice has increased critically the levels of poaching and merchants use online platforms for this trade. Click here and learn more.
The Royal Marines this week unveiled the cover of the corporation’s Globe & Laurel magazine edition. The edition, originally published in 1982, highlights the historical involvement of the corporation in the War of the Maldives and can be accessed through theroyalmarinescharity.org.uk/globe-laurel
Another publication on the Commando Challenge page, which takes place in October this year, is an opportunity to win event tickets.
When capturing the photo above, participants compete for three innings for the 5k circuit of the Commando Challenge. Learn more at: www.commandochallenge.co.uk/facebook-competition
And speaking of Commando Challenge, of course a date that could not be forgotten is International Mud Day!
Present in the final races of the Royal Marines, and in the challenges of Commando Challenge, the mud guarantees unforgettable memories for the participants. Who remembers Ambassador Royal Marine, Henry Cavill, in the 2016 Challenge?
