The Royal Marine Conservation Society of Jordan (JREDS) was founded in 1993 by a group of concerned responsible people, aspiring to protect Aqaba’s marine life from further degradation. In August 1995, JREDS registered under the Ministry of Interior as the first and the specialized Jordanian non-profit, nongovernmental organization dedicated to conserving and protecting the marine ecosystems. JREDS works to promote sustainable management of natural marine resources, raising public awareness, encouraging community participation, and conducting environmental research and monitoring programs. Our mission is to contribute to the conservation and sustainable use of the marine environment in Jordan through conservation, outreach, advocacy, and sustainable development programs and enhance the present and future availability of Jordan’s marine resources for the benefit and enjoyment of future generations.
