Get involved! Projects you can do this month

When it comes to wildlife, caring is no longer enough, we’ve got to take action. Getting out, getting connected and getting involved in good citizen science is one great way of doing this.
Chris Packham, Naturalist and Springwatch presenter

No matter where you live, there are plenty of projects to get involved in our Year of Action. What's more, getting out and about in nature has far-reaching benefits on our mental wellbeing and physical health! Projects for May and the rest of 2019 are listed below.

What our presenters say...

"The only way we can really help our British wildlife, is if we have as much information as we can about it's needs, it's current status and it's environment. To achieve that we need as many people as possible to take action. Citizen science is a powerful tool and getting involved makes you feel empowered." Watches presenter, Michaela Strachan

"Get outdoors and get involved. Take your partner out, take your nan out, take your kids out and above all else, have FUN! (Psst! You'll also be making a REAL difference for wildlife, one data point at a time...)." Watches presenter, Gillian Burke

Do your bit at home

Our Wildlife SOS (Save Our Species) videos are simple guides on how to help wildlife in your garden. Creating a compost heap, building a tiny pond or leaving a log pile will help entice birds, plants and wildlife into your backyards.
