It was one year ago that Henry Cavill and Durrell launched #CavillConservation, a new partnership forged through the mutual passion we share for saving threatened animals. Though, as an actor, Henry is used to playing all kinds of roles, there could scarcely be one more vital than this; Durrell’s very first Ambassador.

We’ve been blown away by the enthusiasm of Henry’s amazing fans. Many of you have come to know about Durrell and its work through #CavillConservation, and we’ve been truly humbled by the generosity and unwavering support of such special individuals.

So, whether you’ve adopted our gorilla family, purchased from our store, or simply helped spread the word, we’re emboldened, knowing we have you in our corner. Our work exemplifies what can be achieved, when like-minded individuals connect and collaborate, working together to achieve inspiring conservation success stories, that often defy conventional wisdom.

Simply put, your support is saving species, many of which would not exist today were it not for this joint effort.

As a special ‘thank you’, we’re very pleased to include below a short video clip from Henry. The video, shared here the first time here on #CavillConservation, was shown before The Man from U.N.C.L.E pre-screening, which took place yesterday in Henry’s home island of Jersey.

In joining our #CavillConservation cause during the last year, we hope you’ve enjoyed playing your very important, very real part in our successes. We’re excited about what we can achieve together in the future, and can’t wait to share our stories with you over the next year, and for many more to come.
