Go WILD with The Wildlife Trusts
Last June, over 400,000 people took part in 30 Days Wild. We challenged you to do something a little bit wild every day, and you did! 30 Days of fun, exciting and simple Random Acts of Wildness resulted in over ten MILLION Acts of Wildness all over the UK. But it doesn't have to end there.
A midwinter nature challenge
12 Days of Wild Christmas is a Christmas challenge to do one wild thing a day from the 25th December to the 5th January. These could be little things to help nature - like recycling your Christmas tree or feeding the birds - or ways to connect with nature in the winter like walking off your Christmas dinner in the woods or admiring the beauty of a winter sunset.
If you're happy for us to contact you, we'll send over lots of ideas to keep you busy over the 12 days.
Getting closer to nature is good for all of us. It can mean looking up at the clouds as they drift by, taking your shoes and socks off on the grass, learning more about the nature in your area, visiting your local nature reserve or showing your support for a Wilder Future by signing up to our campaign to urge government to do more to protect our natural environment.
What is 30 Days Wild?
30 Days Wild is the UK's month-long nature campaign run by The Wildlife Trusts every June. 2019 was its fifth year, and broke all the records for numbers of people taking part!
From little actions (like stopping to smell a flower or taking a moment to watch squabbling sparrows in a hedge) to big things (like giving up single-use plastics for a month or writing to your MP about why nature matters), 30 Days Wild is all about re-connecting with the natural world and doing a little bit of good for wildlife.
We can't wait to get going for 2020 - but we can all Stay Wild in the meantime!

Who are The Wildlife Trusts?
No matter where you are in the UK, your Wildlife Trust is protecting and standing up for wildlife and wild places in your area. We connect local people to nature on their doorsteps; restore diverse wild places and look after thousands of nature reserves for future generations; and inspire people to take action for wildlife. We believe that everyone can make a positive difference to their local environment and that by working together we can achieve nature’s recovery on land and at sea.
The Wildlife Trust for Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire run events, workshops and open days all year, and have over 100 nature reserves across our three counties just waiting to be explored. Sign up for our free monthly e-news and keep in touch with everything we've got going on all year.
