Guernsey's environment needs you!
The island's new Biodiversity Strategy is going to the States on November 25th. It provides the road map for safeguarding our biodiversity but Treasury and Resources are refusing to fund it unless the States vote in favour. This is a really important strategy and the future of our island's environment depends upon it.

Council will be sending a letter to the Deputies urging them to fund it but we need the public need to show their support for this and lobby their Deputies, otherwise it is not going to be funded.

You can sign the online petition, write/email your deputies and make your voice known. To find out more

La Société Guernesiaise was founded in 1882 to encourage the study of the history, natural history, geography and geology of the Bailiwick of Guernsey, the conservation of the Bailiwick’s natural environment and the preservation of its historic buildings and monuments. 125 years later, this is as much true as it was then and the Société is the second largest landowner after the States of Guernsey and is very active in promoting, conserving and studying all aspects of island life.
