About us

We want our Sussex to be a home for nature's recovery. A place where people and wildlife can thrive together, where people can enjoy nature and the health and wellbeing benefits it provides.

We believe that nature is too important to lose

We are a conservation charity for everyone who cares about nature in Sussex. We focus on protecting the wonderfully rich natural life that is found across our towns, countryside and coast.

By working alongside local people we create opportunities for us all to connect with nature, and for nature to thrive in even the most unlikely places. Together we can make sure that future generations living in Sussex will be able to enjoy the sense of wonder and well-being that nature offers.

Together we can make Sussex life richer.

Part of a nationwide network

Sussex Wildlife Trust also part of a wider national movement of 46 other individual Wildlife Trusts that cover the whole of the UK and the Isle of Man and Alderney. The Sussex Wildlife Trust was formed in 1961, and is now the largest local organisation dedicated to protecting the wildlife and natural environment across Sussex.
