Get Active: volunteer, experience, connect with the natural world

We're so sad to hear the news about Paul O'Grady's passing.  He did so much for people and animals, both in Britain and around the world.  He was a true gentleman, compassion, kind, caring and funny.  All our thoughts are with his family, people and animals, his friends and of course everyone at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.  They have set up a Tribute Fund for Paul O'Grady which you can donate to here.  Rest in peace, Paul, and thank you for all you did to bring animals to us on our screens and for all you did for them.  You will be so missed.

Are you up for a walking challenge for wildlife? Take part in the #BigWildWalk for the Wildlife Trusts

Are you up for a walking challenge for wildlife?

#BigWildWalk #30by30

The Wildlife Trusts have a Big Wild Walk between 26 October and 1 November. #BigWildWalk

It’s a great opportunity to tick off four things all at once:

  1. Get active
  2. Discover your nature reserve
  3. Make memories
  4. Raise money for your Wildlife Trust
  5. (I’d add:  and eat lots of cake when you get home, with a nice hot cup of tea!)

The idea is that we all walk 10,000 steps a day during this time – you can push yourself to do more if you want!  You could walk 3 km a day – that’s the average a hedgehog does a night – or do a spotter’s challenge and see how many species you can spot. 

The whole aim of the #BigWildWalk is really to raise money for the Wildlife Trusts 30 by 30 appeal.

They want to raise £30 million to put nature in recovery across at least 30% of land and sea, by 2030.  This is response to the climate crisis and the terrible decline nature faces.  The Trusts are aiming to help nature recover from years of decline – and bring wildlife back into everyone’s lives, literally on doorsteps!

How to get involved:

Go to the Wildlife Trust’s Big Wild Walk and they will tell you what to do.

Walk for wildlife and help wildlife fight back!

OR if it's easier....

You could also take a look at the Wildlife Trust’s fundraising pack for other ideas.   You could also look at their Christmas list to see what you can do – there are lots of ideas of Christmas presents you could buy for the animal lover in your life!
