Here’s an update on our sampler-volunteers request, and a link to a radio interview on the subject.

Image may contain: 1 person, smilinga) Thank you so far for the great response! We are made up 🙂

b) Jacqui Carrel (our environmental scientist) went on Jersey Radio yesterday to talk with Cathy Le Feuvre about the project and getting more volunteers. You can hear the conversation from 2h32m in.

It’s not too late to come on board for this and other projects, so do get in contact! Message us via this page, or email


Here’s what the original post said:


We’re looking for a University graduate, undergraduate or A level student with interest in marine biology for a few afternoons next month (July).

SOSJ are conducting the final part of a long term study into heavy metals in shellfish on the south east coast.

We need some help for a few days collecting specific samples and collating them for testing; it will comprise:

++ Three low water trips to three sites in the Ramsar Area over three afternoons

++ Sampling and reporting (minimal paperwork!)

It will be a great opportunity to add to your CV / or even be the basis of your thesis.

The initial samples were taken by a Portsmouth University undergraduate in 2009. We will be completing this testing this year nine years later to see how things have changed over time.

It will be a great opportunity to be involved with our work. As we are self-funded, we can’t offer you payment (except for any expenses you incur), but it will be an enjoyable task and you’ll be helping a good cause.

Please respond in the first instance to Jacqui Carrel, SOSJ’s environmental scientist, here on Facebook Messenger or by email to

Can’t do this, but know someone who may be interested? Please share!
