This is my wild life
“No one will protect what they don’t care about; and no one will care about what they have never experienced.” David Attenborough
Welcome to My Wild Life…a brand new, inspirational campaign being launched in spring 2015 by the Wildlife Trusts.
Did you know that…Fewer than one in ten children regularly play in wild places, compared to almost half, a generation ago. (Childhood and Nature. Natural England, 2009)
This campaign aims to bridge this gap between people and wildlife and highlight how we use, interact with and enjoy nature.
How do you experience your Wild Life? It could be at your allotment where you feed the birds, or leave an area wild; perhaps you walk past something special on your way to work each day that lifts your spirits; maybe you spend your weekends walking round the Welsh countryside enjoying the fantastic diversity of wildlife to be found; or perhaps you have a window box full of flowering plants that brings you joy.
Send us your stories and pictures of how YOU experience nature. Email: Gina or Lyndsey - we may get back in touch and do a more in depth feature about your story, otherwise we will use Your Wild Life story in our My Wild Life blog coming soon on here.
