Biodiversity background

Jersey signed the International Convention on Biological Diversity in 1992 at the Rio Earth Summit. To comply with Article 8 of the Convention, Jersey produced local biodiversity action plans to achieve recovery of our most threatened species and habitats.

Jersey Biodiversity Partnership

The Jersey Biodiversity Partnership was set up in 2006. It’s an informal partnership of more than 50 organisations, environmental groups and individuals committed to preserving and enhancing the island’s biodiversity and to putting in place the Island’s biodiversity action plans. Members take a practical interest in Jersey’s natural environment via research projects, surveys, conservation management activities or environmental campaigns. The JBP actively encourages more groups or volunteers to join.
