Go WILD with Essex Wildlife Trust
Can you do one wild thing a day throughout the whole of June? We believe you can! Many of us sought solace in nature during the past year, so celebrate and strengthen that connection by taking part in the UK's favourite nature challenge, 30 Days Wild! All you have to do is enjoy something a little bit wild every day during June: that's 30 Random Acts of Wildness you can even do from your own home. Sign up today to get your free pack full of inspiration for exciting, wildlife-filled days.
What is 30 Days Wild?
30 Days Wild is a fun, feel-good challenge run by The Wildlife Trusts every June. Back for its seventh year, we’re inviting everyone in Essex to carry out Random Acts of Wildness every day during June for your health, wellbeing, for wildlife and for the planet. Go on a bug hunt, switch to green energy, make a bee hotel… whatever you do, just make sure it’s wild!
What's in your free pack?
Your daily Random Acts of Wildness can be anything you like - litter-picking, birdwatching, puddle-splashing, you name it! But to help you on your way, we will also provide you with a FREE postal or digital pack of goodies to inspire your wild month when you sign up - including an activity passport and a wallchart to track your progress. We’ve got special packs for those taking part at their school, care home, or workplace, 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.
Why take part?
It's not just wildlife that benefits during 30 Days Wild, you'll feel great too! Taking part in 30 Days Wild is scientifically proven to make you feel happier, healthier, and more connected to nature. More than half a million people got involved with 30 Days Wild across the UK last year, from families and couples, to teachers, care homes and workplaces, join them this year and rekindle that precious relationship with the natural world.... everyone's invited!
