Swanscombe Marshes SSSI - your action requested

You will be aware of Swanscombe Marshes and its recent notification as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) - this recognises the sites national importance for its breeding birds, invertebrates, plants and geological features. As part of the process, Natural England, the government’s nature conservation agency, must formally consult on this notification, which runs until the 12th July, until it is officially designated. There is therefore an opportunity for organisations and individuals to support this. The more people who can respond to the consultation and commend Natural England for taking this decision the better. We would be delighted if you could take ten minutes of your time to follow the guidance on Buglife’s page here www.buglife.org.uk/campaigns/save-swanscombe-marshes/tell-natural-england-that-you-want-the-swanscombe-peninsula-protected to support the notification. ...

Swanscombe Marshes – What can you do?

Swanscombe Marshes - What can you do?

There are lots of ways you can get involved. Join campaigning groups on social media (Facebook, Twitter etc) Save Swanscombe Peninsula being an excellent start.  Follow our updates, and those of the central RSPB Community Follow the ...

Swanscombe Marshes some good News

Good news for Swanscombe Marshes, Natural England have declared that it should be a SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest).  Pressure from RSPB, Buglife and Kent Wildlife Trust have opposed the London Resort project and this is a great step forward.     Currently the area has been "notified" which gives it the same weight of protection as a fully designated SSSI, there is now a consultation period until 12th July 2021.   After this it will be declared, amended or withdrawn. Buglife are currently leading the campaign to save the habitat of the Distinguished Jumping Spider, at least 77 conservation organisations are supporting this.   Read their full article  here. This is by no means the end of the fight but it recognises ...
