What is 30 Days Wild?

30 Days Wild is a fun, feel-good challenge run by The Wildlife Trusts every June. Back for its sixth year, it brings people closer to nature where they live, taking small actions that can collectively have a big impact! From little things such as watching a bee from your window or feeding the birds, to giving up single-use plastics for a month or digging a pond in your garden: every Random Act of Wildness counts. If you want to see what others are getting up to, just check out #30DaysWild on social media.

What's in a 30 Days Wild pack?

When you sign up, you'll be able to download a host of goodies to help you plan your month. You’ll have a wallchart, wildlife bingo, an activity passport and a nature table template. We’ll send you lots more resources leading up to June too, from instructions for baking hedgehog cupcakes to a beginner’s guide to wildlife photography.

Why take part?

While nature needs us more than ever, the reverse is also true. We’re all part of nature, and it should be a part of our lives. Over the past five years, we've been working with the University of Derby to find out about the impact that 30 Days Wild has on participants. The results show that people feel happier and healthier after taking part, and for months after too!

Who are The Wildlife Trusts?

The Wildlife Trusts is a grassroots movement, made up of 46 individual Wildlife Trusts operating in every corner of the UK, Alderney and the Isle of Man. We care for 2,300 incredible wild places, from remote woods and wild rivers to inner city pockets of nature. We also look after the amazing wildlife that lives on our coasts and in our seas. By taking part in 30 Days Wild, you can help us to achieve our mission of bringing people closer to nature, and land and seas rich in wildlife.

What is a Random Act of Wildness?

A Random Act of Wildness is any thing that you can do in an average working day to bring a little nature into your life. They can take a few seconds, a few minutes, or if you lose yourself completely, a few hours! We've got quite a few ideas below - but you can make up your own, too!

Go stargazing!

Get away from the artificial light of populated areas and go stargazing on a clear evening. How many different constellations can you see? Can you spot any bats? You might even see a shooting star - remember to make a wish!

Bring nature to your neighbourhood

Team up with neighbours to make more space for nature in your local area. Cut hedgehog holes in fences, plant hedges and more...

Find plenty of inspiration in our Actions for Wildlife collection!

Actions for Wildlife

Tune in by switching off!

Rewild your family by banning all electronic items from being switched on for a day – TVs, tablets, phones and computers are all out! Tune in to nature instead!

Start a family I-Spy game, or Plant, Animal, Mineral based on your surroundings. Finish off the day by eating dinner in the garden, and play board or card games whist the day is still hot.

Perfect!

Unleash your inner artist!

Are you a Rembrandt or a Van Gogh? A Pollock or a Seurat? Grab a piece of paper and take a pencil outside. Have a go at sketching a plant, seed or feather up close. You’ll find yourself getting lost in the exquisite details, shapes and textures. There are so many amazing features in nature you’ll be spoilt for choice.
