The management plan for Jersey’s south east coast Ramsar site has been published to coincide with World Wetlands Day on 2 February. The plan sets out a framework for supporting the diverse wildlife found in the Ramsar area and ensuring that resources are used in a sustainable and integrated manner.
The plan was written by the Ramsar Management Authority which was set up by Senator Freddie Cohen, Minister for Planning and Environment. It is made up of government and parish representatives, the Receiver General and various non-governmental organisations.
Assistant Environment Minister and Ramsar Management Authority chairman, Deputy Rob Duhamel, said “ This plan is a major step forward in the responsible and integrated management of the south east coast of Jersey. I welcome the plan and would like to thank members of the authority for all their work. We now need to work on achieving the aims it sets out and deliver the benefits for all Islanders and future generations.”
The Management Authority will now continue work on specific aspects of the plan and would welcome the contribution of any interested individual or groups.
Copies of the plan are available to download below. Hard copies are available on request from the Fisheries and Marine Resources Section at Howard Davis Farm.
