Springwatch 2009 may be over, but don't be too downhearted. The main attraction, nature itself, carries on all around you. So get out, get dirty, and get involved!

Summer is on its way and with it a whole host of wild and wonderful experiences to enjoy. Whether you live in a city or the country, are young or old, rich or poor, expert or novice, UK wildlife has something for everyone. This aim of this website is to bring you and UK wildlife closer together.

We will keep updating special sections providing ideas on where to watch wildlife in the UK, how to help wildlife in your garden and how to better understand, enjoy and protect our amazing sea life. But we need your help to keep it current, so please continue to post your own suggestions.

We're also going to leave the messageboards up in "read only" form and with selected highlights so you can look back through what has been an amazing month-long conversation about UK wildlife, thanks to your tens of thousands of posts.

Keep filming your home movies over the summer and remember to tell us about them as they may get featured on a future series. And don't forget the browse the stunning pictures of spring on the Springwatch Flickr group.

We brought nature live to you, but now it's your turn to keep it live. There are so many ways that you can do your bit and get involved with helping nature, whether that's in a window box, garden, park, allotment or in your local community. Our friends at BBC Breathing Places have lots of ideas of things you can do, from easy to adventurous. Go to their "Do One Thing" section for inspiration. If you have anything to do with a school why not encourage them to become a Breathing Places School?

Go on - make a difference!
