Sussex Wildlife Trust

The Sussex Wildlife Trust was formed in 1961, and is now the largest conservation organisation dedicated to conserving the natural heritage of Sussex.
One of the most wooded counties in the UK, Sussex is a splendid county with a rich history, with dramatic coastline, grazing marshes, the glorious chalk hills of the South Downs and internationally rare heathland.

The aim of the Sussex Wildlife Trust is to conserve the Sussex landscape, wildlife, and its habitats, and to use its knowledge and expertise to help the people of Sussex to enjoy, understand and take action to this end.

With more than 25,000 members and 6,500 junior ‘Wildlife Watch’ members, the Trust manages 3,500 acres of land, which include some of the finest wild places in Sussex. Over 450 active volunteers are involved in all aspects of our work and together work more than 6,500 days a year for the Trust.

The Trusts renowned schools programme, together with an extensive programme of courses and events enables people to understand and respect the habitats and wildlife in Sussex.

We speak out and are listened to on all the major environmental issues that impact on life in Sussex. We work with landowners, local and national bodies to achieve a better environment within which the economy can thrive and at a local level with people in villages and towns enabling them to manage a local green space for wildlife.

The Trust is an important information centre on habitat, wildlife and conservation issues. ’WildCall’ is a telephone information service for anyone with a query on conservation, from a concern about a planning application to what to do with an injured wild animal.
The Trust houses the Sussex Biodiversity Records Centre which holds over 1,000,000 species records across Sussex.
