Walk for Wildlife on 22 September

Love life! That’s the message behind Chris Packham’s Walk for Wildlife, an event for people to express their collective concern about the threats that wildlife faces in the UK.

Taking place on 22 September in central London, people who love nature and wildlife will gather to show how much they care. Everyone is invited, and scores of charities will be represented. Staff and supporters of the Berks, Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trust will be attending and we hope that you can join us.

Chris Packham said, ‘Whatever your profession, whether you work for or are a member of a wildlife organisation, or simply enjoy being in nature, it’s important to unite for wildlife’.

People will be gathering from 10am on Saturday 22 September at the Reformer's Tree in Hyde Park. There will be ‘infotainment’ from noon, and the walk begins at 1pm. It will finish at 2pm at Richmond Terrace. The Reformer’s Tree is in the north east corner of Hyde Park. The nearest tube stations are Marble Arch and Oxford Street.

More information is available at www.chrispackham.co.uk. The website includes posters you can download and use to publicise the event in your community, workplace or school. There is also a very poignant film highlighting the loss of millions of birds in the UK over recent decades.
