What's your wild life? / Miles Davis What's your wild life? / Miles Davies

We hope the phrase My Wild Life will be on everyones lips this year as we join with the 46 other Wildlife Trusts in the UK to spread the word that nature matters.

This campaign aims to engage people with their local wildlife and wild places encouraging them to submit their own stories showing the value of nature to them as individuals.

At Sussex Wildlife Trust we teamed up with Brighton Theatre Group (BTG) who are currently rehearsing for the musical Sister Act, to produce this show stopping image to launch our Sussex campaign. We wanted to raise awareness of the fabulous views and wonderful walks freely available for everyone to share and enjoy.

Colette Ridehalgh who plays nun Sister Mary McCrystal lives in Headland Avenue, Seaford and regularly walks on Seaford Head with her family. Her sisters were stunned by the fabulous views of the Seven Sisters cliffs and they attracted more than a few stares while having their picture taken during a break from rehearsals.

Sister Act, Tuesday 14 April - Saturday 18 April at 7.45 pm will be performed at All Saints Church, The Drive, Hove, BN3 3QE. Tickets 01273 709709 or visit:

Sussex Wildlife Trust is encouraging everyone to join in with the campaign, submit their own My Wild Life story and be featured on the My Wild Life website. Please visit: for details.
