Our Projects

Working together for wildlife

With the support of various funders, partners and communities, we're working across the county on numerous projects to protect, and connect people with, nature.

Our projects range across multiple types of natural habitat; from grassland to wetland, hilltops to seashores - and there is always room for you to get involved and get up close to nature.

The Fifth Continent

Stretching between the counties of Kent and East Sussex, Romney Marsh is one of England’s most distinctive and unique landscapes. The Ingoldsby Legends (1837) recognised the importance of Romney Marsh as a fifth continent through the statement ‘The world, according to the best geographers, is divided into Europe, Asia, Africa, America and Romney Marsh’.

The Fifth Continent Landscape Partnership Scheme seeks to deliver a number of exciting projects based around three key themes to RestoreRediscover and Reclaim Romney Marsh.

Our aim is to reinstate them as important and valued spaces for the local community, by working with local volunteers engaged in an exciting programme of practical work, scientific research and hands-on learning.
