Background and rationale
There is a wealth of conservation work being undertaken by statutory bodies, charities, non-governmental organisations and others across the county but to date, there hasn’t been a comprehensive, or easily accessible, means of documenting it.
Last summer Kent Wildlife Trust embarked upon a collaborative project with the Kent and Medway Biological Records Centre, the Environment Agency and Kent Nature Partnership to develop a map-based tool to do just that.
Kent’s Conservation Landscape Tool allows anyone to view the patchwork of projects currently underway across the county and aims to enable those delivering these projects to better understand what kindred organisations are currently working on as well as highlighting future opportunities for collaboration. It is hoped that this new resource, which will be periodically updated to reflect the inception of new projects, will assist in achieving the bigger, better, more joined-up landscape that we are all working towards.
How do I submit new projects to Kent's Conservation Landscape Tool?
You can let us know new project areas and details by adding them via the new project portal. Click the button below to access this and follow the simple instructions listed in the About section by clicking on the “Information” button in the top right corner of the map window.
For further information, contact Chloe Sadler, Water for Wildlife Officer.
