My Wilder Life – a 60th anniversary celebration

Celebrating the Trust’s 60th birthday this year, ‘My Wilder Life’ is about sharing your favourite image that best highlights the difference you have made for wildlife in Suffolk. This could be at home, work or leisure and in a public or private space. It can depict an individual action or one celebrated with others. Whatever action you’ve taken, wherever it is and whoever was involved, now is the chance to shout about it!
