As gorilla-finding fever sweeps the island, organisers of Durrell's 'Go Wild' trail are urging islanders not to sit on the sculptures to avoid damaging their special artwork, after two had to be re-homed.
The trail launched a couple of weeks ago, with 40 life-size gorillas being placed around the island, and the team at Durrell say the response so far has been "incredible" with 70,000 'unlocks' of the gorillas on the app so far.
But they are urging some islanders to take more care, as despite the clear signage, some of the gorillas have been damaged as a result of people posing for photos while sitting on the back of the sculptures.
Apparently my ‘Groovy Gorilla’ is causing quite a stir! Quote from Bailiwick Express below…
