Go WILD with The Wildlife Trusts
This June, join hundreds of thousands of people taking part in 30 Days Wild. We're challenging you to do something a little bit wild every day: that's 30 Days of fun, exciting and simple Random Acts of Wildness. It's easy!
We're giving you a free pack of goodies to help you plan your wild month, plus lots of ideas from Sussex Wildlife Trust to inspire you to stay wild all throughout June (and beyond!).
What is 30 Days Wild?
30 Days Wild is the UK's month-long nature campaign run by The Wildlife Trusts. Now in its fifth year, sign up and take part with hundreds of thousands of people across the UK (and do your bit to help wildlife, too!).
From little actions (like stopping to smell a flower on you way to the shops or taking a moment to watch squabbling sparrows in a hedge) to big things (like giving up single-use plastics for a month or pledging your support to a nature campaign), 30 Days Wild is all about re-connecting with the natural world around you and doing a little bit of good for wildlife.
What's in your pack?
When you sign up, you'll receive a pack full of wild goodies! You'll get a wallchart, with a calendar (to help you plan your month) and an awesome poster! You'll also get a booklet packed full of ideas to help you go wild, a set of super stickers, and some wildflower seeds to brighten up your garden or window box!
Why take part?
Getting out in the natural world is good for the mind and body. And it's not just for the weekend – it should be every single day. Immerse yourself in nature this June with 30 Days Wild!"
It's not just wildlife that 30 Days Wild helps; you'll feel the benefits, too! We're all a part of nature, and nature needs to be a part of our lives.
Over the past four years, we've been working with the University of Derby to find out about the impact that 30 Days Wild has on people taking part. Spending time outdoors can make you feel happier, healthier and closer to nature, as well as helping people to take more actions to help wildlife.
Your Random Acts of Wildness could include:
- Leaving part of your lawn uncut and see what grows
- Making a wild work of art outdoors and leave it for others to enjoy
- Go to your nearest woods and stand silent and just listen
- If you're at work, plan to have a meeting outside
- Get outdoors and watch the sun set
- Talk to your neighbours about wildlife they have seen
