Views sought on management of Jersey's Ramsar sites

Islanders have been asked how they would like to see Jersey's four Ramsar sites managed by a protection group.

The States consultation asks people what they see as issues for the sites.

The sites are the South-East coast plus the offshore reefs of Les Dirouilles and Les Pierres de Lecq, Les Miniquiers and Les Ecrehous.

The Planning and Environment Department last month established a Ramsar Management Authority to look after the internationally recognised wetlands.

Assistant Environment Minister Deputy Rob Duhamel said: "This is a very important issue and it's vital the public, as well as stakeholders, contribute to this consultation.

"Public engagement and involvement are central to the Ramsar ethos."

The consultation is available from the States, and the department is gathering comments until 18 June.
