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!
