Go WILD with The Wildlife Trusts
This June, join hundreds of thousands of people taking part in 30 Days Wild. We’re challenging you to do something a little bit wild every day: that’s 30 Days of fun, exciting and simple Random Acts of Wildness. It’s easy!
We’re giving you a free pack of goodies to help you plan your wild month, plus lots of ideas from your Wildlife Trust to inspire you to stay wild all throughout June (and beyond!).
What is 30 Days Wild?
30 Days Wild is the UK’s month-long nature campaign run by The Wildlife Trusts. Now in its fourth year, sign up and take part with hundreds of thousands of people across the UK (and do your bit to help wildlife, too!).
From little actions (like stopping to smell a flower on you way to the shops or taking a moment to watch squabbling sparrows in a hedge) to big things (like giving up single-use plastics for a month or pledging your support to a nature campaign), 30 Days Wild is all about re-connecting with the natural world around you and doing a little bit of good for wildlife.
What’s in your pack?
When you sign up, you’ll receive a pack full of wild goodies! You’ll get a wallchart, with a calendar (to help you plan your month) and an awesome poster! You’ll also get a booklet packed full of ideas to help you go wild (check out the yummy recipe on page 7!), a set of super stickers, and an invitation you can give to a friend or neighbour to invite them to take part with you!
Why take part?
Getting out in the natural world is good for the mind and body. And it’s not just for the weekend – it should be every single day. Immerse yourself in nature this June with 30 Days Wild!”

It’s not just wildlife that 30 Days Wild helps; you’ll feel the benefits, too! We’re all a part of nature, and nature needs to be a part of our lives.
Over the past three years, we’ve been working with the University of Derby to find out about the impact that 30 Days Wild has on people taking part. Spending time outdoors can make you feel happier, healthier and closer to nature, as well as helping people to take more actions to help wildlife.
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.
