Walk 4 Wildlife


The countdown to a Guinness World Record™ Breaking attempt is 2.15 pm on May 19th 2017.  Walk 4 Wildlife will be attempting to set a new Guinness World Record™ by organising the biggest sponsored walk ever held and we want you and your school to ''put your best foot forward' for WildAid.

Every school in the UK is invited to hold their own Walk 4 Wildlife as part of a mass sponsored walk. You choose where to walk and there is no set distance or pace - you can walk for 30 mins or 3 hrs, it's up to you.

The only criteria we set is that everyone will need to be walking at 2.15pm on the 19th May, to be included in our Guinness World
Record™ attempt. The current world record is 231,635 people all walking at the same time!

To take part all you have to do is fill out an enquiry form on the Walk 4 Wildlife website www.walking4wildlife.com/schools-walk and enrol your school. You will then receive an information pack with details on how to register to give the money your school raises to WildAid.

Why support WildAid?  
We work for British wildlife and for people. The impact of our community work transforms people's lives. We have been connecting people with the natural world for over 20 years and we want to keep transforming peoples lives for future generations. Here is some feedback about our work:

  • Children were constantly engaged which reinforced their learning
  • You are much needed in schools
  • Your work means students gain vital knowledge about the environment and it has improved their literacy, motivation and development.

We will be using your sponsorship to deliver our wildlife ambassador workshops.  We know that never before have young people been so dis-engaged with the natural world and we know we all have a part to play and 'making a difference' for future wildlife ambassadors and the natural world.
