Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel: ECO-ACTIVE Marine Champions

The Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel has become the first business in Jersey to Champion the Island?s marine environment through the ECO-ACTIVE Biodiversity Scheme run in conjunction with the States of Jersey.  Situated near to the Island?s south coast Ramsar site the hotel recognises the intrinsic link it has with the objectives set out by the scheme, which aims to engage everyone who enjoys getting out on the water, or whose livelihood depends on boats and watersports, in environmental issues.   Focusing on its waterfront location, the hotel has created a bespoke programme of activities including hands on conservation management tasks such as the removal of marine debris, the planting of native coastal plants including sea campion, wild carrot, oxeye daisy and maram grasses. The team will be developing a range of initiatives to get local school children involved in the Marine Habitat Scheme such as a ?Strandline Bioblitz? in association with ECO-ACTIVE and the Grassroots Beach Clean initiative.
