30 Days Wild is the annual happening (event/inspiration/activity/experience) promoted by the UK’s Wildlife Trusts to bring us closer to the nature that is all around us.
The recently published Global Biodiversity survey, shows over 1 million species in imminent danger of extinction. We need to do our best to promote the welfare benefits of staying in touch with nature. 30 Days Wild is part of the effort.
My 30 Days Wild
Last year I blogged about my 30 Days Wild experiences every day. That was a lot of effort. With everything else I have on my plate, blogging about nature shouldn’t take all the time I should be experiencing it!
This year I’ll be doing a weekly post, highlighting the major and minor events that make up 30 Days Wild.
These could be as big as spending a day in a nature reserve, or as small as gazing at the sunset.
The emphasis is being in touch with nature, in its broadest sense. Activities could include:
- finding pretty pebbles
- drawing a picture
- reading a book outside
- listening to the birds….
These are called Random Acts of Wildness, and are as important as the big events.
I might even find time for a few things on my list last year that I didn’t fit in.
Updating you on my 30 Days
I’ll be posting each Friday about the week just finished.
Please drop by and support me – and if it inspires you to spend a little time outside, or communing with the nature outside (or inside) your home or workplace, then that’s great.
Just raising your awareness of the wildness around you, makes it your #30DaysWild too!
