Join the People's Walk for Wildlife on 22nd September.

It’s time that we converted our national love for nature programmes on TV into taking action to protect endangered wildlife.

A study by the WWF and Zoological Society of London found that the number of wild animals on Earth has halved in the past 40 years. Here in the UK research has found that one in seven wildlife species are at risk of extinction.

There have been major international assemblies, protests and marches to fight poverty, stop war, tackle climate change and in support women, science and gay pride. For some reason, until now, there has been no major gathering in support of wildlife that calls for action to halt the decline and extinction of species.

Led by naturalist and broadcaster Chris Packham, the People’s Walk for Wildlife is an opportunity for us to come together and demonstrate how much we value nature. You can read more about his call for action here.

Just like Pride, the Women’s March and Stop the War, we don’t have to agree on all the solutions to agree that radically more needs to be done and that we should come together to say that.

There should not be just a few thousand of us supporting this effort. Inspired by our outrage, but with the spirit of a carnival, we should aim for over 100,000 of us on the walk.

Make a difference to wildlife in London and beyond by attending the People’s Walk for Wildlife in central London. Help to make it a success by:

1. Bringing as many people as you can with you. Can you bring your family, neighbours, group or colleagues?
2. Help to make the walk as colourful and noisy as possible. Start planning your sound system and fancy wildlife dress now!
3. Spreading the word on social media by sharing this page. We’ll keep it updated as more information is made available. The hashtag is currently #PeoplesWalkForWildlife.
