The Thanet coast - amongst the best wildlife sites around!
This website covers information about the important habitats for marine and bird life around the North East Kent coast. This information relates to the management of a number of nature conservation designations, known as the North East Kent Marine Protected Area (NEKMPA) which includes the North East Kent European Marine Site (NEKEMS) and the more recent Marine Conservation Zone (MCZ). These sites are amongst some of the best wildlife sites in Europe.
