Just like that, we’re into the first week of 30 Days Wild, the Wildlife Trust’s biggest mass participation campaign that challenges people to do a random act of wildness every day for the month of June. Now in its seventh year, 30 Days Wild is growing year on year with thousands of people taking up the challenge to do something wild, making wildlife part of their everyday lives and last year, an amazing 2,496 Suffolk residents took part!
The beauty of 30 Days Wild is that your random acts of wildness don't need to be time consuming or require going on a wild goose chase looking for rare species, it can be simply taking the time to walk barefoot through grass, take your book outside to read under a tree or discovering a new species and spending time to look it up and investigate it further. Of course, your acts of wildness might just be a little more adventurous and you may well do a stake out to catch a glimpse of an elusive species or create a habitat for wildlife the great thing is, it’s open to all and the variety wildness is always so great to see.
