MAKE YOUR OWN OUTDOOR ADVENTURES 

Count your Wild Miles 

Take on the RSPB Wild Challenge and challenge yourself and your family to travel under your own steam on journeys where you would normally take the car. Cut down on your carbon footprint by walking or cycling instead of using the car, help the climate and feel better for the exercise.

Wildlife has no choice but to use the power of its wings, fins and feet to move and some species make amazing migrations. Can you match a small proportion of their efforts in just a week?

You could match a painted lady butterfly by travelling a total of eight miles (they travel 800 miles from North Africa in the wild). Go a little further and match a waxwing by travelling 11 miles (they travel 1,100 miles from Scandinavia in the wild). Match a brent goose by travelling 19 miles (they travel 1,900 from Canada in the wild).
