60 years protecting wildlife in Surrey
In March 1958, John Clegg, a museum curator in Haslemere and keen ecologist, wrote to his acquaintance, John Sankey: “I wonder if a few of us might get together to formulate some plans about a Trust”. One year later, the Surrey Naturalists' Trust was born.
Over 60 years later our name may have changed, but the motivation that inspired our founders remains the same. 2019 marks a milestone for the Trust. We begin a new chapter with a new CEO and a new approach to conservation in Surrey. We have the chance to shape environmental laws and protect wildlife for generations to come. If we act now, in 60 years’ time wildlife could be thriving and at the heart of everyday life.
