Wilder lives

We believe that everyone deserves to live in a healthy, wildlife-rich natural world and experience the joy of wildlife every day.

Nature is vital for our health and happiness but for most of us, our daily surroundings are artificial. More and more people live their lives with little or no contact with nature, and this disconnect affects our mental health, contributes to obesity and even has an impact on life expectancy.

Seeing birds near our homes, spending time in green spaces filled with wild flowers, and walking along rivers that are clean and clear reduces stress, fatigue, anxiety and depression.  

We want to create opportunities for more people to get closer to nature in their everyday lives.

Rewild a Child

We’re making nature a part of growing up again by providing activities for local children in Sussex to explore the outdoors, learn new skills and try something different.  

From imaginative play in woodlands to pond-dipping and getting wet and muddy, this builds confident, healthy and happy children and makes a connection with nature that can last a lifetime. Find out more


Environmental education

We provide environmental education and teacher training to encourage the enjoyment and understanding of wildlife through life-long learning. 

Our activities and games are designed to support aspects of the National Curriculum, but we also want participants to be inspired to protect the natural world around them. Find out more
