The Ball celebrated the life of Durrell Wildlife’s late Founder, Gerald Durrell, in what would have been his 90th birthday year. “The fact that Henry is part of this celebration makes it even more special,” Durrell Wildlife said on their Facebook page.
As you know, a year ago Henry Cavill became the Global Ambassador of the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, an international charity working globally to save species from extinction, and launched his website www.cavillconservation.com to inform his fans about his work with the organization.
Early this year, on May 2, during the annual Ipes Siam Cup, a rugby match between Jersey and Gernsey, Henry raised funds for Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust. That time he raised an impressive £17,000 to support Durrell. Shortly before it, Lee Durrell revealed, that the organization experiences finance difficulties and may cease to exist.
This time, the 'Glorious Ugly Bug Ball' raised £100,000 for Durrell so that it can continue its global mission to save species from extinction.
