#GivingTuesday - How you can easily help wildlife

Today is #GivingTuesday, the day to support your favourite charity! There are many things you can do to help wildlife in Hertfordshire and Middlesex.

The Wildlife Trusts have recently launched a huge fundraising campaign, aiming to raise 30 million pounds (£30,000,000) to ensure that by 2030, we can protect at least 30% of land and sea for wildlife - the bare minimum needed to help nature recover. Over the last weekend alone, Brits have spent 250 times this, around 7.5 billion pounds (that's £7,500,000,000!) on bargains and deals between Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Today is Giving Tuesday, a day to help charities by spending money on a good cause rather than the best deals. Whether you'd like to donate directly or raise funds in another way, there are lots of options to support your local Wildlife Trust.
