Jersey hosts biodiversity conference

02 October 2014

People across the Channel Islands with an interest in plants, animals and the environment are invited to a yearly biodiversity conference held in Jersey.

The Inter-Island Environment Meeting is an annual opportunity for people working in the environmental field to get together and hear about new and ongoing projects and share views and ideas. It’s open to everyone with an interest in nature.

This year’s theme is the monitoring of animal and plant populations in the Channel Islands.

Among the presentations at the conference will be one about the initial findings of research into Jersey’s rarest reptile, the grass snake.

The Department of the Environment is working with scientist Rob Ward and the University of Kent on a project to find out more about the reptile and to save it from extinction.

Other topics on the agenda for the event on 9 and 10 October 2014 are:

  • Jersey's crapaud - an update on Channel Island toads
  • Guernsey seabird breeding season update
  • Podarcis muralis - the wall lizard in Jersey
  • Jersey mammal survey
  • The red-billed chough in Jersey

The Inter-Island Environment Meeting is being organised by the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, working with the Department of the Environment and the Jersey Biodiversity Partnership and is sponsored by the Insurance Corporation.

If you would like to attend for one or both days, or would like to find out more, please contact the conference organisers at Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust by telephone or email.
