Conservation Volunteer Groups

One way to assist in the preservation of wild birds in Sussex is to help local wildlife organisations develop and maintain the natural habitat. There are many opportunites throughout Sussex to contribute in this way. Below are some organisations which organise voluntary conservation groups and which would welcome your contribution. Contact them directly if you are interested.
