The Thanet coast's wildlife treasures!

This website covers information about the important habitats, marine and bird life around the North East Kent coast.  This relates to the management of a number of nature conservation designations - known as the North East Kent Marine Protected Area (NEKMPA)  These sites are amongst some of the best wildlife sites in Europe - and include the longest continuous stretch of coastal chalk habitat in the country.

THANET COAST PROJECT EVENTS - Look at what events we are running:

*Whilst some events have had restrictions (over the last couple of years due to  coronavirus), we have been out on the coast for you - and you can view our virtual seashore safaris to have a closer look at some of our local marine life. We have also produced some self-guiding information - so that you can take a closer look yourself!
