Wildlife on your doorstep

Stay wild at home

How to explore wildlife from home

We know that people who spend time in nature are happier and healthier, but it can be difficult to know how to do this safely in the current climate. That's why we wanted to bring the outdoors, indoors with our range of free activity sheets, spotter guides and videos.

We also know how important it is to stay active and exercise where you can. Just a bit of time every day spent in nature can help relieve stress and improve mental wellbeing. If you do want to visit a nature reserve, only head to those close by and always make sure you follow Government guidance on social distancing.

Please share your wildlife creations, projects and adventures with us on our social media channels to inspire everyone during this difficult time. Tag us and use the hashtag #EverydayWildlife.

Dune Art Challenge

We invite you to take part in the #DuneArtChallenge in celebrating happy memories, beautiful landscapes and incredible wildlife. Just share a photo of your artwork on social media adding the hashtag #DuneArtChallenge, and you can join hundreds in the campaign to protect our sand dunes.

Activities will be released weekly with accompanying activity sheets, which can be downloaded from the website here. So take a look, share your art and get creative!

Wildlife surveys at home

Whether it's a newt in the pond or a hedgehog visiting your garden, you can log your wildlife sightings to help with our vital conservation work. You can also take part in a number of different wildlife surveys from home, from counting birds on the bird feeder to identifying the wildflowers in your garden - anyone can get involved!
