Making Sussex a place where wildlife and people can thrive.
Decades of conservation action, protective policies, government commitments and unarguable scientific justifications for nature conservation have failed to turn the tide of wildlife loss.There are positive conservation success stories, but these are small and isolated.
Whilst there is an inescapable case for nature being at the root of health, wealth and wellbeing, modern society has separated people from their natural world. The benefits from nature are unseen,unvalued and in decline.
Today wildlife might thrive in small, isolated areas but these, together, do not add up to a healthy wildlife-rich environment.
This document aims to share a vision with our partners. It is a vision of how we – all of us, not just Sussex Wildlife Trust – want to be remembered.
