Little Feet Environmental

About

Littlefeet Environmental is an NPO that specialises in marine turtle conservation and research through community involvement and education.

 

Company Overview

Littlefeet Environmental is a Jersey (Channel Islands) registered not for profit organisation. We currently work on the Island of Jersey conducting educational workshops and seminars that give Islanders the tools to live a greener and more sustainable lifestyle. As an Island, we conduct shoreline cleanups each weekend to ensure the safety of both the people and species that we share our beaches with. We work hand in hand with other local, specialized organisations to ensure the greatest environmental impact. 

Overseas, we are currently working in the southern Mexican Caribbean having created ‘The Costa Maya Turtle Project.’ This is a research and conservation initiative dedicated to analysing and preserving the marine turtle populations that can be found here through the in-water research of three nationally protected areas; the Banco Chinchorro Biosphere Reserve, the Sian Ka’an World Heritage Site and Xcalak National Marine Park. 

We welcome volunteers from all over the world to participate in our volunteering regimes whether it be in Jersey removing marine debris from local beaches or in the sunny Caribbean learning how to dive along the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef.

Matt Porteous

The Studio_M, 1-3 La Colomberie, St. Helier

As a young boy, Matt showed an unusual interest in photography and in his parent's photo albums. His first yellow, underwater Minolta accompanied him everywhere. It was through that simple lens that he learnt to capture the sublime beauty of nature.

Matt’s love and delight in his surroundings is evident in his work. He captures and reveals the expression and detail that is seldom evident to the naked eye. His images are alive with emotion and movement; he enters the world of that image and allows us a glimpse of his excitement, his humour, his soul.

His mentors, close friends and travel opportunities have all influenced his approach to his work over the past 20 years. He is passionate about his photography and always has been. The love he has for his work, the people and places that he encounters along the way is apparent in the detail and perspective, in the stories he tells in his photographs.

Matt Porteous has won UK awards for Sports, Travel and Wedding Photography....
