They include TV presenters Gillian Burke, Kate Humble and Nick Baker who have all put their weight behind the campaign to reconnect people with wildlife in a fun and inspirational way.
So far 55,500 people, schools and workplaces have signed up to 30 Days Wild which starts on Friday June 1. Sign-ups are rising, and the Wildlife Trusts hope to beat last year when an estimated 250,000 took part.
Gillian Burke, TV presenter, biologist and Springwatch presenter, says: “Try 30 Random Acts of Wildness in 30 Days! I’d love people to connect with the wildlife around them – I think lots of people don’t know how to do it… this is the perfect way to start and discover how you can make a difference. Where will your wild adventure take you? I might dance in a downpour!”
Kate Humble, TV presenter, wildlife, nature and science programmes says: “I have got a challenge, I want you – throughout the month of June – to go outside every day! That’s 30 whole days going outside. Why wouldn’t you? Just go wild in June!”
Nick Baker, naturalist and television presenter says: “Ever since I was a small boy I’ve been fascinated by wildlife and the natural world. It’s so important for us all to have regular contact with nature – I know it makes me feel happier and healthier. Taking the 30 Days Wild challenge is a brilliant way to reconnect with your own wild side – so why not get out and go wild this June?”
