Charity information

Thanet Countryside Trust Fund

The Trust works to enhance and conserve the natural environment, flora and fauna of Thanet's only independently owned nature reserve.

Founded 1972

  • Mission statement

    Monkton Nature Reserve is an important mix of eleven identified habitats with at least ten protected species including important flora and fauna species requiring special attention. Without careful management of these habitats the diversity of the reserve will not be preserved or enhanced for the benefit of the local community.
    Our strategic Aims
    1 Develop the strategic tools required to enable and encourage local people to make use of the reserve and to support the Trust in its conservation work

    We will continue to increase public awareness of the Reserve and to increase its use. We will provide information via the most effective channels through an increased focus on marketing and publicity.

    2. Work to secure the long term viability of the Reserve and development of a new Field Centre
    We will develop and implement a Business Plan, a Habitat Management plan and a Fundraising strategy. We will develop a new build strategy including establishing a new build committee which will focus on fundraising for the new build as part of its brief.

    3. Develop research and analysis work and habitat management plans and develop educational courses for the local community
    We will provide more detailed analysis of flora and fauna, review status changes of populations of the flora and fauna and manage the creation of habitats. We will begin to develop a range of educational courses and programmes for the local community.
