Surrey Wildlife Trust is one of 46 Wildlife Trusts across the UK, a grassroots movement working to protect and connect at least 30 per cent of land and sea for nature's recovery by 2030. ‘Our vision for a wilder Surrey is a future with abundant wildlife and nature recovery networks rich in biodiversity.’

Pond Farm, our primary base on Wisley Common, is not readily accessible via public transport so the ability to drive and access to a vehicle is essential although suitable SWT work vehicles will be available. It will be necessary for you to be located within a 45-minute drive of either Pond Farm in Wisley (GU23 6QS) or Bonhurst Farm in Bramley (GU5 0LA).
