What Sussex Wildlife Trust do?
Sussex Wildlife Trust is just one of the 47 individual Wildlife Trusts working across the UK for nature’s recovery on land and at sea.
With over 32,000 members and 430 active volunteers, Sussex Wildlife Trust is the largest nature conservation organisation protecting the wildlife and countryside of Sussex. Their work involves looking after over 4,500 acres of prime woodland, heathland and meadow habitat on 32 nature reserves.
They also put on an extensive programme of courses and community events to help people learn about and enjoy the wildlife in Sussex. Their Forest School, Nature Tots, family events and education programme are all aimed at connecting children with nature to promote a life-long love of wildlife.
Their work benefits both the countryside and native species including otters, water voles, seahorses and rare butterflies.
