"10,000 of us played bird song on the streets of London!"The People's Walk for Wildlife
Derbyshire Wildlife Trust takes part in The Peoples Walk for Wildlife!
Our very own Enquiries Officer, Nick Brown, tells us about his day in London on The People’s Walk for Wildlife.
“It rained on us in Hyde Park, dried up for the Walk and started again as we left!
It was very inspiring to hear so many great speakers including some very young ones. What Chris Packham has achieved is really quite remarkable and hopefully just the beginning. The crisis is so deep and so challenging we all need to show even more passion, lateral thinking and willingness to work in partnership with others if we are to have any hope of turning the tide.
It was a totally inspiring day and I met lots of lovely and interesting people on the Walk which was filled with birdsong playing from everyone’s phones. A peregrine flew over us as we walked down Pall Mall – a sight to behold!”
"The next generation needs to care enough to drive real change and we want a wilder Britain.”CEO, Derbyshire Wildlife Trust
Derbyshire Wildlife Trust’s Forest School session on the day focused on The People’s Walk for Wildlife. The children wrote their own manifesto for wildlife, built bird boxes and wrote a mini book of wildlife wonders
Dr Jo Smith, The Chief Executive Officer, from Derbyshire Wildlife Trust travelled to London to join The People’s Walk for Wildlife. Jo wanted to help raise awareness of the extreme recent decline of wildlife and the urgent need for change. Jo Smith said “I took my nephews too because the next generation needs to care enough to drive real change and we want a wilder Britain.”
