Children are happier, healthier and more creative when they are connected to the natural world. This should be an option not just for a few, but for every child in the UK. We want every child to have access to wild experiences.
Join our new campaign and help us put the wild back into childhood.
Listen to five young naturalists sharing their ideas, read our guide to getting children outdoors and our new report, take part in our surveys for teachers and parents and be inspired by projects going on near you. Share your views and ideas using #EveryChildWild.
Our special place of the week is Cumbria Wildlife Trust's South Walney Nature Reserve.
Now managed by Cumbria Wildlife Trust, In winter, South Walney Nature Reserve is brimming with birdlife and a great place to spot grey seals.
Wherever you are there's a Wildlife Trust near you, caring for your wildlife and wild places.
Being closer to nature enhances our lives. Projects initiated by The Wildlife Trusts and by charities like Mind are making the link between nature and our mental and physical health increasingly clear.
