Get your boots on for beavers! Walk 30km for wildlife and show you care about the nature and climate crisis with The Wildlife Trusts’ Big Wild Walk.


The Wildlife Trusts are on a mission to protect and restore at least 30% of UK land and sea for nature by 2030. We're asking nature-lovers to help us by fundraising vital money - every penny raised will contribute towards a wilder future for people and the planet.

The choice is yours to take on one of three challenges:

• Walk 30km over the Big Wild Walk week

• Walk 30km in three days

• Walk 30km in one day

Alternatively, you can create your own goal to achieve within the week!

You'll even receive an exclusive Wilder Future tote bag when you raise £30 (whilst stocks last).

As this is a virtual challenge, you can complete it however you like, wherever you like. Invite the family to join in, set up a remote relay with friends or take the challenge yourself. Indoors or outdoors, front room, park or wood, treadmill or track – the choice is yours! 

Every penny raised will help us achieve our vision for a wilder future. Together we can restore huge peatlands, create new wetlands, and plant new underwater seagrass meadows. We can create hedgehog highways, sow wildflowers for bees and transform cities into urban wildlife havens.

Nature has given us so much, it's now our turn to give back.

What is 30 by 30?

Our natural world is in trouble - this is no secret. Wildlife is disappearing at an alarming rate and the threat of climate catastrophe is a constant worry. We live in a time of emergency.

There is still hope - we can tackle both of these critical issues - but we have to act now. Time is running out. 

The Wildlife Trusts are calling for at least 30% of our land and sea to be connected and protected for nature’s recovery by 2030. Making more space for nature to become abundant once again will give our struggling wildlife the chance to recover and also restore beautiful wild places - places that store carbon and help to tackle the climate crisis.

30% is the bare minimum that nature needs to start recovering but we are far short of this and need your help to turn things around...
