A WILDLIFE trust has launched a 30-day challenge to show people how to look after the environment.

Tees Valley Wildlife Trust's annual campaign, 30 Days Wild, encourages people to interact with nature each day for 30 days.

Sign up is now open for the Trust's month-long nature challenge which begins June 1.

The Trust has created a pack to help those who take part and includes a packet of wildflower seeds, a wall chart to track the challenge, posters, stickers and an interactive booklet.

The pack also contains a list of 101 'Random Acts of Wildness' for people to complete one every day throughout June.

For the first time, the Wildlife Trusts have also produced a pack for care homes alongside packs for schools and businesses.

Steve Ashton, People and Wildlife Manager at Tees Valley Wildlife Trust said: “30 Days Wild is such a fun thing to do and everyone can get involved - make a daisy chain, start a list of wildlife you see in your garden, look for animal tracks or feel cool grass between your toes.

"You can sign up now to get your free pack of goodies, including stickers, wallchart and lots more Random Acts of Wildness to help you to plan your wild month.

"Get your family, friends, school, work place or care home involved too.

"We can’t wait to share in everybody’s wild adventures.”

Last year, the 30 Days Wild challenge saw over 350,000 take part.

The Wildlife Trusts currently have 5,764 people signed up.

During 30 Days Wild there will also be the Trust's Big Wild Weekend, on June 15 and 16, which will feature a number of wildlife events such as wildflower walks, dawn chorus bird watches and natural art workshops.

This year the Trust said there is also a new companion to 30 Days Wild – 365 Days Wild by Lucy McRobert which shares ideas for staying wild throughout the year.

The Wildlife Trust's are a collection of local charities which have been formed by people getting together to spread people’s awareness and understanding of the natural world.

Collectively, the Trusts have more than 800,000 members, 40,000 volunteers, 2,000 staff and 600 trustees across 2,300 nature reserves and 100 visitor and education centres.

Now in its fifth year, 30 Days Wild participants can keep up to date on activities across social media with the hashtag #30DaysWild.
