It’s June which means it’s time for 30 Days Wild, The Wildlife Trusts’ annual nature challenge.
The Wildlife Trusts is calling on anyone and everyone to do one wild thing a day throughout the whole month for their health, wellbeing and for the planet.
While outdoor activities may currently be restricted due to lockdowns worldwide, there are any number of inspirational activities that everyone around the world can take part in from growing herbs indoors, planting a tree, baking hedgehog cupcakes, filming wildlife from your doorstep or window, to eating a different piece of fruit every day for 30 days.
Dr Amir Khan, GP and Ambassador for The Wildlife Trusts, said: “In the current nature and climate emergency, we’re seeing more people affected by eco-anxiety – feeling overwhelmed by the damage to our environment and not knowing what to do to help. This, along with other stresses, aren’t good for us.
“But with 30 Days Wild from the Wildlife Trusts you can incorporate some simple nature-based activities into your daily life and feel the benefit. These activities can lower blood pressure, take our minds away from our day-to-day concerns and help us relax, as well as providing simple ways to help wildlife.”
