At The Wildlife Trusts, we want to see at least 30% of our land and sea  protected and connected for nature by 2030. 

We know how important this is to help tackle the climate and nature crisis - but we need your help to make it happen! Strap up your walking boots and join us for the #BigWildWalk, our national fundraising event! 

Walk 30km from Monday 24 October to Sunday 30 October. 

  • Walk it all in one day, three days, seven days, or set your own goal entirely! 
  • Walk it, run it, crawl it, or cartwheel your 30km! 
  • Complete it as part of a team or go solo! 
  • Are you walking with young children? Why not try the Hedgehog Challenge! Walk 3km with your little ones - that’s the same distance a hedgehog can cover in a night.  

Every pound raised will help us achieve our vision for a wilder future, and when you raise over £30 you will receive an exclusive #BigWildWalk pin badge!

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...
