The RSPB are asking for people up and down the UK to join them in their latest initiative, which involves spending a night outdoors as part of the RSPB’s Big Wild Sleepout.
The new project will be taking place over the weekend of the 7th August with the event encouraging people and families to spend one or two nights sleeping outdoors in order to discover what cute animals and insects they share a space with. This can be done at home, in the garden, but what better excuse do you need to book yurt holidays and other glamping UK breaks that this, so that you can get involved?!
There are even some organised sleepout events held at a host of RSPB reserves across the country.
The Big Wild Sleepout initiative is now into its third year, and is operating in conjunction with the Give Nature a Home campaign, which we ran an article on earlier this month, also run by the RSPB. The campaign has been set out to try and inspire the population to help out wherever possible for the preservation of our country’s nature and wildlife.
Whenever we head off to sleep, this is when the wildlife really comes to life, and the RSPB’s latest campaign is looking to bring us closer to nature by encouraging people to listen and keep an eye out for the wildlife that visits them in the night.
It is imperative that we promote and inspire people, both young and old, to preserve nature for future generations, and the Big Wild Sleepout offers us the chance to enjoy wildlife at night together, so why not join in this exciting campaign?
