Following the latest clear instructions from the Government for us all to remain at home apart from a limited number of allowed activities, we are saddened to announce we will be closing our reserve to visitors until further notice.
This means we will now close our car parks to the public, and gates to the main reserve and ARC will be locked. These measures are on top of the existing closure of our visitor centre, hides and toilets. It is with great sadness that we ask people to refrain from visiting the RSPB, to help us restrict the spread of coronavirus. Please also note that all events scheduled between now and the end of April have been cancelled.
Our efforts will now move to helping the millions of people spending time at home. We are determined to do our bit to try and help connect people with the amazing wildlife to be seen in gardens or from balconies or windows, and offer some hope and joy in these difficult times. We also have an archive of wonderful photographs taken of Dungeness and it's wildlife, so we hope to share these with you too.
Over the coming days and weeks, we will also be helping people to share their wildlife encounters and provide ideas for things they can do for wildlife close to home. Follow our Facebook, Twitter and blog.
Thank you for your support, our work to save nature will continue in these challenging times.
