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.

Please help support local coastal and marine conservation work if you are able to donate to help our coastal and marine work.

The Thanet Coast Project works with local people to help safeguard the wildlife and the coastlines' unique features, and is now reliant on upon 100% donations and grants from public contributions and local businesses. 




Thanet Coast Project events Whilst summer events were cancelled due to the coronavirus mitigation measures, we have been out on the coast for you - and you can view our virtual seashore safaris to have a closer look at what marine life you may see on our coast:
