The Royal Marine Conservation Society of Jordan (JREDS) was founded 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 only Jordanian non-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to preserving and protecting the marine ecosystem.
JREDS works to prevent the destruction of the Gulf of Aqaba by promoting sustainable management of natural marine resources, raising public awareness, encouraging community participation, and conducting environmental monitoring. Over the last decade, JREDS, with the support of its 250 members, a staff of 14 people, 3 international and 100s of local volunteers in Amman and in Aqaba, has developed and expanded its 3 programs areas, under which 16 projects and initiatives are currently operating.
