About Us

Tankerton by WM

“The Kent Nature Partnership has a vision for the Garden of England to have a healthy natural environment that is rich in wildlife, is enjoyed and valued by all and underpins our long-term economic, social and personal wellbeing”

The Kent Nature Partnership was awarded Local Nature Partnership (LNP) status by the government in July 2012 to drive positive change in the local natural environment. The Partnership takes a strategic view of the challenges and opportunities involved in managing the natural environment as a system benefiting biodiversity, people and the local economy.

Our mission is to enable a diverse range of organisations to work in partnership and to make the best use of their available resources in order to achieve significant gains for Kent's biodiversity. A wide range of organisations are involved in the partnership, but the KNP is interested in extending the partnership and  building support for the priorities set out in our strategic priorities and action plan 2018 - 23. 

The Partnership is led by a Project Board currently chaired by Caroline Jessel. The work of Board is supported by the Management Working Group.
