Családom és egyéb állatfajták - Gerald Durrellre emlékezünk

25 éve nincs közöttünk Gerald Durrell, a népszerű brit író, zoológus.

(1925.január 7. -1995. január 30.)

A kihalt dodó képe Oxfordban, a Természettudományi Múzeumban

Könnyesre nevettük magunkat vicces könyvein, amelyekben a szórakoztatás mellett rengeteget tanulhattunk az ismert és ismeretlen állatokról, növényekről, és a helyekről, ahol a kalandos életű természettudós megfordult. Indiában született, Angliában nevelkedett, majd a háború kitöréséig Korfun élt, viccesen,színesen, és nagy-nagy szeretettel lefestett családjával. Az állatok és  a természet szeretete csak erősödött benne az idő múlásával. Fajtamentő expedíciók, ismeretterjesztő tévéműsorok, és tucatnyi könyv őrzi ma is a nevét, akárcsak A Durrell WildLife Conservation Trust, vagyis a Jersey Vadvédelmi Alapítvány.

Olvassák el újra a könyveit, nem fogják megbánni!

    A Zoo In My Luggage

    Durrell,Gerald
    Kiadó: Penguin Books Ltd.
    A Zoo in My Luggage is Gerald Durrell's account of his attempt to set up his own zoo, after years spent gathering animals for other zoos. Journeying to Cameroon, he and his wife collected numerous mammals, birds and reptiles, including Cholmondely thechimpanzee and Bug-eye the bush-baby.But their problems really began when they attempted to return with their exotic menagerie. Not only had they to get them safely home to Britain but they also had to find somewhere able and - most of all - willing to house them.Told with wit and a zest for all things furry and feathered, Gerald Durrell's A Zoo in My Luggage is a brilliant account of how a pioneer of wildlife preservation came to found a new type of zoo.

    My Family and Other Animals

    Durrell,Gerald
    Kiadó: Penguin Books Ltd.
    When the unconventional Durrell family can no longer endure the damp, gray English climate, they do what any sensible family would do: sell their house and relocate to the sunny Greek isle of Corfu. My Family and Other Animals was intended to embracethe natural history of the island but ended up as a delightful account of Durrell's family's experiences, from the many eccentric hangers-on to the ceaseless procession of puppies, toads, scorpions, geckoes, ladybugs, glowworms, octopuses, bats, andbutterflies into their home.
