  2. To promote environmental education through meetings, the publication of a journal, newsletters, special guides, occasional papers and through the website.
  3. To encourage and support the maintenance of an up-to-date record of all local sites relating to the natural history of Essex.
  4. To promote interest in the natural environment generally and to liaise with other natural history societies and conservation bodies in or around Essex.
  5. To make data and historical material available, where appropriate, for the purposes of conservation, research, monitoring, education and general information.
