What Can We Do For You?

The team here at Jersey Marine Conservation are truly passionate about making a difference. Over 5 years we have won 5 awards, testimonials to how valued our work is. We are not about rattling collection tins, we are about getting in some pretty chilly water, battling dangerous rip currents and getting the job done.

In Jersey and the surrounding Channel Islands the sea is so much a part of our lives we often take it for granted, but if it wasn’t here, or was destroyed we would be forgoing our responsibility to both community and the environment.

Through our proprietary data gathering, education and underwater photography we are able to protect our marine ecosystems for future generations.

Please contact us if you want to find out more about our mission.

Multi-Award Winning

In 7 years we have won 7 awards and counting…

A brilliant day in celebration of World Wetlands. I am hoping our organization of the Exhibition will promote more support and encourage our politicians to acknowledge the need for Ramsar management and a properly supported National Park. I have posted a full thank you to everyone who help make the event the huge success it was.

Jersey Marine Conservation and the Ramsar Management Authority would like to invite anyone interested in Conservation to the World Wetlands Day Exhibition taking place this Saturday, February 2nd at St Clements Parish hall.
The central attraction will be the Butterfield Marine Species Touch tank giving visitors the chance to get up close and personal with some of our amazing and rarely seen marine animals. This is your chance to hear some great speakers giving illustrated talks on our Wetlands. There are lots of interesting exhibits to see and for all the family.
