You may, or may not have heard about the Step up for Nature campaign the RSPB has recently launched, but I bet many of you have taken steps without even knowing it. We'll be launching the official Step up for Nature Schools campaign next year, but in the meantime, perhaps this blog will make you realise how many steps you've already done for nature.
You might have......
Well, I’m thrilled to be able to tell you that in the past six months, over one million steps for nature have already been taken. That’s one step every 18 seconds!
We just want to take a moment to thank you for your support without which we couldn’t even begin to try to tackle the catastrophic declines in bird species and other wildlife, and the damage and destruction of their habitats. With your help we’ve been able to help turn around the fortunes of wildlife like bitterns, corncrakes, stone curlews and great yellow bumblebees.
Every small step you take can make a big difference, and if everyone acts together nature stands a chance.
One step you can take today is to start planning your Big Schools Birdwatch 2012 by ordering your free resource pack. Packs are being dispatched from today, so you won't have long to wait to get yours!
