Kent & Medway Biological Records Centre is located in the heart of Kent at Brogdale Farm in Faversham. We are a charitable organisation which aims to collect, collate and disseminate, as widely as possible, information about the wildlife species and habitats found within our County. By making this information available to inform on planning and development decisions as well as to support conservation and education work we can help to ensure that Kent's rich diversity of flora and fauna are protected for the future.
None of our work would be possible without the tremendous support we receive from the individuals and organisations who dedicate their time to going out in the field and recording the wildlife around them. There are a number of species recording groups and specialist recorders in Kent, all of whom run on an entirely voluntary basis and whose work directly contributes to the wealth of information we are then able to collate at KMBRC for use in decision making, education and research. By having data exchange agreements with our local recorders and recording groups we can ensure that data is shared in a way that results in both KMBRC and the species specialists having access to the same information, validated and verified to the best of our shared abilities and with the minimum risk of duplication.
