Most children are full of the most impractical schemes for becoming policemen, firemen or train drivers when they grow up. When I was a child, however, I did not have such ordinary ambitions. I was going to have my own zoo.

At the time, this did not seem to me, and still does not seem, an unreasonable idea. My friends and relatives, who had long found me strange because I showed little interest in anything that did not have fur or feathers, accepted this as just another example of my strangeness. They felt that, if they ignored my often-repeated remarks about owning my own zoo, I would eventually grow out if it.

As the years passed  however, my determination to have my own zoo grew increasingly strong, and eventually, after going on a number of trips to bring back animals for other zoos, I was ready to start my own.

From my latest trip to West Africa, I had brought back a considerable collection and animals which were living, temporarily I assured her, in my sister’s suburban garden in Bournemouth. After a number of unsuccessful attempts to convince the local council to support my plans, I began to investigate the possibility of starting my zoo on the island of Jersey in the English Cannel.

I was introduced to a man named Hugh Fraser who, I was told, was a broad-minded, kindly soul. He would show me around the island and point out suitable sites. So, my wife and I flew to Jersey and were met by Hugh who drove us to his family home, probably one of the most beautiful old houses on the island. There was a huge walled garden with lots of outbuildings all built in the beautiful local stone. Turning to my wife, I said, “What a marvelous place for a zoo!”

To my relief, Hugh Fraser did not think my idea absurd, and asked whether I really meant what I said. Slightly embarrassed, I replied that I had meant it, but added hastily that I realized it was impossible. Hugh said he did not think it was as impossible as all that.

He went on to explain that the house and grounds were too big for him, and so he wanted to move to a smaller place in England. Would I care to consider renting the property for the purpose of establishing my zoo? I could not imagine more attractive surroundings for my purposes, and by the time lunch was over, the bargain had been sealed.

The alarm displayed by all who knew me when this news was announced was intense. The only exception to the general chorus of disapproval was my sister. Although she thought it a mad scheme, at least it would rid her back garden of the assorted jungle creatures who were straining her relationship with her neighbours.
