We Research. We Educate. We Protect.

Jersey’s only dedicated marine conservation group, we ensure the waters we all love and cherish remain harmonious and prosperous.

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…

August Bank Holiday
In my skydiving days this late summer vacation had us circling in an aircraft at 3000ft, watching a horizontal windsock and marquees looking like they would soon be joining us in the sky. True to form, the weather has curtailed our Reef Survey aboard 'Magic', the survey teams hardboat. Not wanting to be beaten, we took a long seabed walk out to Seymour Tower. What an amazing area with seasquirts, Montagu Crabs, Tompot Blennies and all sorts of sponges.
Tomorrow looks better and we hope to reach the South side of the Minquiers, to complete the furthest south Seasearch surveys, yet done in British waters.
Attached are some images from today including the Monatgu Crab & a Baked Bean, Seasquirt landscape.
The new Seasearch, Seasquirts & Sponges Book is an invaluable aid to identification.

Yesterday was a light speed journey through what we do and are very good at it. We kicked off with a brilliant snorkelling session down at Bouley Bay the 4th day of our Marine Conservation workshop.
St George's School, under the eagle eye of Toyah and Adam explored the seabed guided by Bouley Bay Dive Centres instructors. About 8 different species of Jellyfish and similar creatures were seen plus an Eden type tour of the wonderful reef. Our sledge from the AJC came in very handy and the underwater cameras were a big hit. The session finished with a Beach clean-up and 20 smiling faces!
Then it was off to the Insurance Corporation awards where our clean-ups scooped a special Commendation. What a great job that company doesdo in recognising all the fabulous volunteering by people like Alison & Neil www.birdingjersey.co.uk+ Courtney and Andy www.facebook.com/littlefeetenvironmental+ Sarah McLaughlin with her Bioblitzing, small players but a passion for safeguarding our Island!
The day could not have been better as Clive and I surveyed Rozel for the Seasearch database with huge Skate, a Torpedo Ray, shoal of juvenile Bass etc, etc.
Its tough being a Jersey Marine Conservation volunteer! Could you do it?
