CEO Surrey Wildlife Trust

Sarah Jane has worked for Surrey Wildlife Trust for over 11 years, latterly as Director of Biodiversity, before becoming CEO in February 2019. She has brought a wealth of successful partnerships and projects experience to her role – she was the co-founder and Director of the Surrey Nature Partnership, co-authored the ‘Natural Capital Investment Plan for Surrey’ and is a Trustee of the Surrey Hills Society and Ecosystems Knowledge Network.  During 2019, SWT’s 60th anniversary year, Sarah Jane refocussed on the core mission to increase biodiversity and engage people in the natural environment.  She is leading SWT’s new 5 year strategy ‘Restoring Surrey’s Nature’ to create a living landscape with connective hedgerows, rivers, nature reserves and green spaces across Surrey and wants to seize the opportunity to secure a strong zero carbon, nature based recovery.  When she has time to relax, Sarah Jane enjoys walking, dressmaking and providing a taxi service to her 3 teenage boys!
