The hidden underwater world of the Sauvage reef – talk by Dr Sam Blampied

Join us for a free talk by Geopark Ambassador Dr Sam Blampied about life below water in a special part of Jersey’s waters.

The Sauvage reef is found on the very south-eastern border of Jersey’s territorial waters and is home to an extraordinary array of marine life. This marine life is a result of the impressive geology of this reef system which has resulted in steep drop-offs that, combined with the strong currents bringing in food and nutrients, have allowed for an incredible diversity of anemones, sponges, cold water corals, crustaceans and fish. Recent research by divers has revealed the importance of the Sauvage reef. During this free talk, find out more about this hidden underwater world with the many species that live there and be transported through the reef.
