30 Days Wild30 Days Wild

An exciting new challenge for everyone!

This June, Wildlife Trusts Wales is asking everyone do something wild every day for a month. The challenge is simple and designed to delight: make room for nature – no matter where you are or how busy your life.

Everyone who signs up to The Wildlife Trusts’ 30 Days Wild – the UK’s first ever month-long nature challenge – will receive a pack full of encouragement, ideas and ‘Random Acts of Wildness’. They will also receive a wallchart to track progress, a wild badge, and regular blasts of inspiration throughout June straight to their inbox to help everyone make nature part of their lives.

The 30 Days Wild sign-up page is www.wildlifetrusts.org/30dayswild. Detect, discover, dig; invite, inhale, immerse; shout, scatter and sweep… we’ve listed 101 fun and intriguing ideas to get you started. It’s all about making time for nature in your life - and it’s free.

We know that a generation of children are growing up disconnected from nature – only 1 in 10 children ever play in wild places. But this is a problem that affects adults too. It can be difficult to create the right moment or to find time for nature in busy lives. We’re here to inspire people – whatever your age, wherever you live, we want everyone to feel they can take part.



The Wildlife Trusts are asking people to invent their own ‘Random Acts of Wildness’ or use our list for our inspiration – these acts are everyday ways to connect with nature or help wildlife. This could be as simple as:

• Inhale: take a few seconds out to smell a wildflower

• Record: put wild sounds onto your phone and make them your ringtone – you’ll be transported back to the wild every time you get a call
• Encounter: share a close encounter with a favourite species – take a friend along to a Wildlife Trust event
• Create: make a wild work of art outdoors and leave it for others to enjoy
