Today is World Environment Day, an annual event aiming at raising awareness of the threats facing our environment and encouraging people to take action to protect nature and the planet.
It's run by IUCN and this year there's a video speech from Dr Jane Goodall, you can find it here.
There are plenty of incentives right now, Volunteers' Week is just coming to a close, read our previous blog about that here and today it's the fifth day of the Wildlife Trust's 30 Wild Challenge, read more about this one on the Trust's special Challenge site here or join their facebook group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/30DaysWild/
In case you've missed it we're doing the 30 Day Challenge too. It's a real eye opener and thoroughly enjoyable (plus an extra excuse to get out of the office or house!), we're keeping track of our progress here. As you'll see it's got lots of pictures too!Are you taking part in any of these? Do let us know.
