It's your time to make a difference

The nature and climate emergency affects us all - our families, our countryside, and the wildlife we love. But it's not too late to act if we act now. Together, we can make change happen. We can all do our bit to save nature, do the right thing for climate change, and work together to create a better world.

We need to show our leaders that actions speak louder than words. So we’re asking you to take an action for nature and share what you’ve done. Every action you take shows those deciding our future that you care about nature and the climate. It will help us demand that decision-makers follow our lead and take ambitious action for the nature and climate emergency.

Here’s how you can get involved.

Want to help the birds you love?

Location: UK-wide
Type of action: Come together

Wildlife needs space to thrive. If you donate today, you’ll help create more places for wildlife. This means that breeding wading birds have room to nest, and species such as spoonbills and bitterns have more space in the future.

Type of action: Roll your sleeves up


Peat takes centuries to form, and is home to incredible wildlife - but it can be destroyed in days. Sign our pledge to stop using peat. You’ll also find out how easy it is to go peat-free in your garden, to ensure it thrives and is great for nature.

Saplings ready to plant

Plant a tree or shrub

Location: UK-wide

Type of action: Roll your sleeves up


Get digging in your garden and plant a tree or shrub. They provide food and shelter for wildlife, store carbon to help combat climate change, and make your garden look great too! There’s a tree or shrub suitable for every space.

Log pile

Love your logs and leaves

Location: UK-wide

Type of action: Roll your sleeves up


Don’t tidy up – it’s time to love your logs! Gather together your logs and leaves and create a pile. It’ll attract all the best things: woodlice, worms, fungi and bacteria, and that helps the creatures who feast on them, including birds and hedgehogs.

One of the easiest ways to help wildlife is to put out supplementary food. Try cat food or specialist food for hedgehogs (never milk). Birds like a variety, so try sunflower hearts, suet balls and mealworms. You can feed garden birds all year round.

Tell your politicians to step up

Location: UK-wide

Type of action: Shout louder


They work for you, so contact your local politician and ask them to stand up for nature. In the nature and climate emergency, nature suffers, which means we suffer. If enough of us speak on behalf of nature, decision-makers have to act.
