The Royal Marine Conservation Society of Jordan (JREDS) was founded in 1993 by a group of concerned Jordanian ecological divers, headed by HRH Princess Basma bint Ali, one of the first female divers in Jordan.
The initiative, which started as a simple for-fun nature dive officially became the first specialized Jordanian non-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to the conservation of the marine environment in 1995.
“Env_Awraq: is the first environmental news website in Jordan launched by the Royal Marine Conservation Society (JREDS), specializing in environmental issues and sustainable tourism. This site contributes to monitoring and addressing environmental and ecotourism issues.”
Website is developed in a partnership with the Sustainable Cultural Heritage through Engagement of Local Communities Project (SCHEP), funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)
