The Sussex Pond Survey

To the support the Ponds Habitat Action Plan (HAP), we embarked on a programme of baseline surveys of Sussex countryside ponds.

Trained volunteers carried out surveys of pond amphibians, plants and invertebrates. We supported our volunteers with maps, species data, and expert advice and assistance. The results helped enable us identify Priority Ponds under the Ponds HAP, and to advise pond owners on good management practice. We also identified suitable sites for pond creation under the Million Ponds Project.
