- Monitoring planning applications relating to coastal development
- Working together with governmental authorities with a view to ensuring all information relative to the public interest is communicated openly and not selectively

- Maintaining an interactive website containing reports and news items accessible to the general public
- Lobbying States Members and others where necessary
- Working with schools and universities
- Promoting awareness of the abundance and importance of marine species found in Jersey’s intertidal zones, especially on the south east coast
- Endeavour to seek out, and wherever possible confirm the facts and truth pertaining to the each of the issues it takes on, eschewing political and public service ‘spin’ and ensuring that the public receive all the relevant factual data on such issues; this will, however, not preclude investigation and, if appropriate, exposure of abuses of the law or governmental procedures, processes or systems should they be encountered in attempting to achieve its aims.
- Act with integrity at all times
