About Kent Wildlife Trust
Kent Wildlife Trust is the leading conservation charity covering the whole of Kent and Medway.
Nature is in trouble and it needs our help. Kent Wildlife Trust has a 20-year plan to aid nature and we engage with politicians, business leaders, landowners, communities and people in order that we can all work together to protect wildlife.
We're all nature lovers here. Driven by a set of core values to inform our work, we have a vision of Kent's future for wildlife and a mission to do everything we can to make it a reality. We bring people closer to nature and invite you all to join us in our fight to protect wildlife in Kent. Together we can make a difference.
Our values relate to a world rich in wildlife and better for people. These values are:
We are passionate about nature and passionate about people's experience of nature.
We inspire people to act in ways which benefit the natural world.
We work with individuals, organisations and communities to deliver value to the economy, to people and to wildlife.
Our desire to secure a strong future for the people and wildlife of Kent in steadfast and enduring.
Science, evidence and data underpin our thinking.
Kent Wildlife Trust is a flexible employer that aims to be one of the best employers in the environment sector in the southeast. It is one of the largest of the 47 Wildlife Trusts, which together make up the Wildlife Trusts Partnership. We are supported and governed by our 32,000 members, and have the simple ambition of enabling the recovery of Kent’s wildlife. To this end, we own or manage some 65 nature reserves covering over 8,100 acres; we campaign and lobby politicians, decision makers and landowners to ensure site protection and good habitat management; and we run a full programme of education work with schools, colleges and adult groups. Kent Wildlife Trust also has three Visitor Centres.
Kent Wildlife Trust operates from its headquarters at Tyland Barn, just north of Maidstone. It is composed of over 100 professional and support staff who work within teams including Estates, Conservation Delivery & Partnership, Conservation Policy & Evidence, People Engagement, Marketing and Fundraising, Finance and Support Services.
