Sussex Pony Grazing & Conservation Trust

Charity description

Sussex Pony Grazing & Conservation Trust logo
The Sussex Pony Grazing & Conservation Trust helps to protect valuable wildlife habitats of the Sussex High Weald and South Downs by undertaking conservation grazing with hardy Exmoor ponies. Conservation grazing helps to control more aggressive, dominant species of vegetation on chalk grassland and heathland thus encouraging bio-diversity and the restoration of sward structure. The Trust is custodian of around 80 'wild' Exmoor ponies whose unique characteristics make them ideal for this work.

Whilst grazing payments cover our day-to-day running costs, income from grants and donations help towards other expenses, such as veterinary costs, fencing equipment and pony transport. We are currently fundraising for a livestock trailer and welcome donations or participation in our fundraising events. You can also get involved in the work of the Trust as a volunteer 'looker' by applying to join our pony checking rota.
