Supporting Conservation Work
We work with number of partners at both local and national level to support wildlife conservation work. Data retrieved from the KMBRC can be found in use for everything from helping local schools to create nature gardens to landscape scale habitat restoration projects.
We currently hold over six million individual species records at the Centre and this number is growing every year. Data comes to us through a wide variety of sources; from members of the public recording the birds visiting their gardens to specialist ecological survey reports. We also have data exchange agreements with our local species recording groups across the county who, as experts in their fields, are a huge help to us not just through their willingness to share their data but also in terms of supporting us with the validation and verification of records.
Our current project partners include Kent Wildlife Trust, The Bumblebee Conservation Trust, and The Freshwater Habitats Trust.
