About Us

KNP is a coordinating strategic body, standing up for nature in the county. “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. 

The Partnership is led by an Executive Level Board chaired by Dr Caroline Jessel. The work of Board is supported by the Management Working Group. KNP also has a range of sub groups working on priority areas.
