What to do if you find an injured or dead animal
Seeing wildlife can be incredible, but it can be hard to know what to do in certain situations. Maybe you have come across an injured or dead animal, or maybe you suspect that a crime has been committed. Our wildlife advice pages will help you know what to do and who to contact if you do find yourself in these situations.
How to record and report a wildlife sighting
It is only through recording wildlife that we can see when changes happen in our environment, whether this occurs in our towns or the countryside. Kent has a proud history of excellent wildlife record-keeping and so we have an incredible network of record centres with which you can log your wildlife sightings.
What to do about Wildlife Crime
Wildlife crime can take many forms and it can be difficult to know what constitutes a crime. They can range from organised crimes (such as the trade in endangered species) to people shooting at birds with air guns. The Wildlife Trust has outlined several examples of wildlife crime and if you believe you may have witnessed any of these, please share this information to assist in bringing offenders to justice.
Kent Wildlife Trust's Consultancy team can give advice on how to best manage your land for wildlife, or you can take a look at some of our downloadable information for managing different habitat types.
