Wildlife Watch Kenton on Sea

Who are we?

As our name suggests, we are a group of Kenton residents who watch the wildlife that lives in Kenton. We want to ensure that it thrives, if we can.

To this end, we have two main goals: firstly, to try and stop the poaching; and, secondly, to try and establish the size of the populations of different animals to see whether they are increasing or decreasing.

We need your help.

On WhatsApp 066 227 5670, please inform us about any activity that you think may be a danger to wildlife, such as dogs that are not under control, and any other evidence of activity that is likely to harm our wildlife. Alternatively, use this Blog.

In addition, please report  your sightings of wild creatures that you see around Kenton. For the safety of the animals we will not publish the information but we will use it to tally the data and publish global information about increases and decreases from time to time. If you can send a photo we will post it on our Blog from time to time (without providing evidence of its location).

Please also report any unusual sightings such as terrapins, chameleons, and even birds that are not normally resident here.

Thank you, Kenton!

The photo of the Grysbok below was taken by Lee Fogarty, who said it was as if the bokkie looked back to say:

“Thank you for removing the snare.”
