'Even the most cautious of travellers would, I think,be
thrilled at the idea of visiting a remote tropical island.
There seems to be something about tropical islands that
stirs the blood of even the most unadventurous souls.'
Lying in the Indian Ocean, the islands of Mauritius and
Madagascar - where millions of years of evolutionary
isolation created a flora and fauna unique in the world -
provide the exotic setting for Gerald Durrell's
expeditionary rescue work with animals. In his personal
and delightful way he entertains, educates and makes a
dramatic appeal to us all about the distressing state of
these beautiful and endangered species around the world
and shows us the serious consequences to life and its
future on this earth. This exciting journey also inspired an
international television series based on the author's
rescue and breeding operations.
