Natural Environment Team annual report

22 August 2011

The 2010 annual report for the Department of the Environment’s Natural Environment Team has been published.

In order to continue the States of Jersey’s drive to improve efficiency, 2010 saw the creation of the new team through the merger of the existing Countryside Management and Ecology Teams. 2010 was designated ’International Year of Biodiversity’ by the United Nations, and the Natural Environment Team has a wide remit to conserve the Island’s landscape, habitats and species.

The team continues to deliver the Island’s international commitments under multi-lateral environmental agreements through management of around 600 hectares of ecologically important habitats in Jersey. They include wetlands, woodlands, maritime heath, sand dunes and grasslands, and their associated, and often rare, species.

The team also manages an Island wide network of approximately 70km of footpaths and bridle paths, including the north and south west coastal footpaths. It also educates and promotes awareness of the importance of maintaining and protecting our rich natural heritage.

Minister for Planning and Environment, Deputy Robert Duhamel, said: "It is important that the Natural Environment Team publicise their achievements as they are unsung heroes of the department who are responsible for maintaining Jersey in all its natural glory. Locals and tourists alike benefit significantly from the important work undertaken by only a relatively small team. Their work should be celebrated and applauded."
