The Scottish Wildlife Trust is encouraging people to do something wild every day this June.

‘30 Days Wild’ is a simple challenge designed to allow anyone to make room for nature – no matter where they are or how busy their lifestyle.

Nick Wright, the trust’s people and wildlife manager, said: “30 Days Wild is designed to offer people simple ways to make room for nature in their lives and commit random acts of wildness.

“The great thing about nature is you can find it anywhere – taking the kids to school, walking the dog, looking out the window on your commute – and by opening your senses to it you can have a tangible positive impact on your health and well-being.”

Many Scots took part in 30 Days Wild challenge in 2015, and Jamie Proudfoot, a youth support worker, even extended his adventure into a year-long ‘365 Days Wild’.

Jamie said: “30 Days Wild seemed like a terrific idea. My daily experiences included birdwatching and bat detecting, wild flowers and waterfalls, and I was struck by how simple it was to turn every single day into a wild one.”
