Birds and sealife
The geology on the coast at Herne Bay provides an ideal habitat for shellfish such as lobsters and crabs, making it a popular fishing ground.
Because of the area’s geological importance and the diversity of wildlife, including species of rare migratory birds the coast here is part of the Thanet Coast SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest).
