Tonight’s Durrell at Dusk was a record breaker with almost 1,400 people turning up at the zoo. The event was a celebration of the @rewildthepeople project with many of the athletes involved coming in to showcase their sports. So here’s a big thank you to everyone who came along and everyone who helped make this and the previous two Durrell at Dusks so awesome! • P.s. It wasn’t just the public getting involved with the sports this evening - a Durrell team member (who will remain anonymous) had a go at archery and managed to shoot a suction-cup arrow through a window... 🏹 #DurrellAtDusk #Conservation #Sport
