About

Jersey Marine Conservation have a year round programme of surveys and educational workshops. In 2019 we started our seabed surveys in January. Our Reef Survey is running from May 25th to May 31st. The Butterfield Marine Watch Tank was a World Wetlands day followed by seedy Sunday and will be visiting La Moye School & Mont L’Abbe. We will also be at the ‘Cultivate Young Minds event on April 2nd. Summer Term kicks of with the Boat Show. There will be a Seasaerch Observer’s Course on Saturday, April 27th and a Sponge Workshop on Saturday, June 15th.

Our three main operations.

Data Gathering

 

Underwater we collect data on indicator species, habitats and human impacts. Our High Energy sites can only be reached in calm conditions and on a slack tide. Each year we carry out around 50 surveys ranging from the Pater Noster Reef in the North West to the Sauvage on the southern extremity of our Territorial waters.

Education

 

A key aim is to educate our Community, Schools and Colleges about the importance and current decline of what were healthy marine habitats. The big success of 2018 has been the amazing Butterfield Marine Watch Touch Tank. This has wowed everyone who has seen it. Get up close and personal to some fascinating creatures you will never normally see!
