A man from Jersey has arrived at the first Durrell site on his 25,000 mile cycle trek around the globe.

Patryk Kucza is raising money for the charity by riding his bike to places where it carries out its conservation work.

He has now made it to the Manas National Park in Assam in north-eastern India, which is home to Durrell's pygmy hog programme.

He first arrived in India in December after cycling through Europe and the Middle East.

Mr Kucza began his epic trip in September 2019, which coincided with the 500th anniversary of Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan's first full circumnavigation of the world.

He had previously cycled 13,000 miles around the Northern Hemisphere, biked across Europe and walked across the length of Britain.
