9 May 2012

The Sussex Wetlands Conference was co-hosted by The Sussex Wildlife Trust and the University of Brighton and was a very informative and enjoyable day, supported by many people from across Sussex and further afield.

A great many organizations were represented on the day, ranging from professionals in the water industry right through to individuals with a strong interest in our wetlands. There must have been at least 150 delegates all eager to learn more from the likes of ecologists, countryside managers, scientists and specialists.
