ECO GREEN Celeb Trending…..is certainly the exceptionally talented thespian actor/Man of Steel, Henry Cavill. We have seen Henry in numerous diverse acting roles from the classic novel – The Count of Monte Cristo by French Author, Alexandre Dumas. Henry starring the character, Albert Mondego son of the Count, in this role, clearly shows his innately, natural talent as an actor. ( We too hope to see Henry starring as Alexander the Great, at some stage in his busy acting career.)

Other films include, Stardust, Immortals, Zack Snyder’s Superman’s, Man of Steel, to historical TV series ‘The Tudors.’ The Man from U.N.C.L.E. his next film is out in August this year.

Besides Henry’s impressive and successful acting career, most importantly, what we really aspire to and appreciate, is his passion and dedication to wildlife conservation. He is also a spokesperson for the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust. A conservation organisation with a mission to save species from extinction. The head quarters being at Les Augres Manor on the isle of Jersey. The Durrell Wildlife park was originally established by the late and great, Gerald Durrell in 1959 as a sanctuary and breeding centre for endangered species.

A personal caption….whilst growing up within the Southern African Savannah, as a child, my dearest mother, read to me bedtime stories, written by Gerald Durrell, which captivated my childhood sense of wonder and imagination. His understanding and connection with animals, is something of a legacy he continues to leave with us.

The late & great Gerard Durrell
In memory of the late & great Gerard Durrell

He was responsible for changing people’s attitudes to zoology and changing their agenda. He showed them that small animals could be as interesting as apes and elephants. His work with endangered species was incredible in that he could persuade them to breed in captivity. He then returned them to the wild. He was a pioneer with a marvellous sense of humour”
