Help The Wildlife Trusts tackle the nature and climate emergency by challenging yourself to a Big Wild Walk this October half-term.

Between Monday 24 and Sunday 30 October, we’re asking nature lovers to fundraise for The Wildlife Trusts, as we embark on our mission to protect at least 30% of land and sea for nature by 2030.

In honour of our 30 by 30 goal, we're challenging you to take on one of the following:

  • Walk 30km over the Big Wild Walk week
  • Walk 30km in three days
  • Walk 30km in one day

Or stay local with:

  • 30 laps of your local nature reserve
  • Visit 30 of our nature reserves
  • Walk for 30 minutes in your nearest green space

Alternatively, you can create your own challenge.

Take part!

I found this was a brilliant opportunity to not only get into nature but also gave us the ability to raise money for The Wildlife Trusts directly supporting our wildlife. We decided that we had to go big in order to raise as much as we could for the Trust. We challenged ourselves to walk 100km in a seven day period. I would highly recommend that people take part in this challenge. It offers many things both to yourself and the natural world. It gives you the ability to explore the natural world while giving back to it.
