POSTPONED: Join us at the People’s Walk for Wildlife 2


On Sunday 27 November, we’ll be heading to London to take part in the People’s Walk for Wildlife 2. We hope to see you there! Read on for a bit of background about the walk, and please make sure to let the organisers know (link below) if you’re planning on coming along.

Who are the organisers? Well lots of people are involved and the walk is supported by many wildlife conservation organisations – including the RSPB, Wildlife Trusts, Badger Conservation and Butterfly Conservation, but our own Chris Packham is the main organiser, and of course Wild Justice supports the walk.

Walk Details:

Date: Sunday 27 November, 12pm – 4pm, London.

Gather from 12pm. Walk from 1pm. Speeches, music and infotainment from 2pm. 4pm finish and home.

Route: We’ll muster from 12pm at Portland Place, and walk down to Parliament Square.

Bring with you:

The style: Your wildest look – the walk will be fancy dress, so don your best wildlife outfit, be it a hen harrier, a hedgehog or a humble slug. Feel free to make wild signs and placards too – family-friendly of course.

The sound: Rather than chants and shouting, we’ll be letting birdsong do the talking. No instruments or drums please. Download the RSPB’s free Birdsong Radio App (Android or Apple) onto your phone, and fill the streets with birdsong on the day.

Important info: If you’re planning on coming along, please let us know so we can estimate numbers. Pledge to walk at Please also consider donating to the walk costs if you can.

Why walk?

You might have attended the first Walk for Wildlife in 2018. It was led by Chris Packham, and attended by 10,000 soggy wildlife lovers, conservationists and environmentalists, ecologists, students, families, scientists, ecologists, land managers and members of the public – all concerned about the state of nature.

So far, 2022 has been politically extraordinary (to say the least). In the midst of multiple waves of turmoil, several worrying threats have emerged – ones that could be disastrous for wildlife and the environment in the UK. Chaos in implementing the Environmental Land Management Scheme, threats to environmental laws under the Retained EU Law Bill, and the unknown impact of Investment Zones and development have all amounted to what many in the sector see as an Attack on Nature.

Nature’s already severely depleted, battered and bruised. This is death by 1000 cuts. Death by countless slashes, burns, persecutions, fells, chops and spillages. We’re asking you as Wild Justice supporters to join us in this walk in solidarity with wildlife and fellow nature lovers.  We need politicians to do more for nature, not to mount attacks on it.

This is a peaceful, joyful and family friendly walk. There will be an atmosphere of urgency, and of joy. Wildlife will be celebrated, and our concern for its fate will be stressed.

We hope to see you there. Pledge to walk at

Stewards, infrastructure, acquiring licences to shut roads and public areas for the duration of the walk – all of this costs money to do safely. These walks can only go ahead with your support – if you feel able to, you can donate at
