Take a walk on the wild side and unleash your animal spirit to help raise funds for Durrell and celebrate their 60th anniversary! On Friday 15th February, Durrell are calling on all their supporters, anywhere in the world, to enjoy a day of wild activities and fundraise wildly for the world’s endangered species. Whether you’re at home, in the workplace, at school, or part of a club or team, they invite you to come up with your unique take on ‘wild’, and take part in an animal-inspired fundraising activity of your choice. So wear it, bake it or workout WILD—just remember to have fun and raise funds wildly for Durrell to help them achieve their vision of a wilder, healthier, more colourful world. Or why not use this day to make a pledge to 'do it for Durrell'? You could sign up for The Durrell Challenge 13k, take part in a sporting event in your local area or come up with a wild idea of your own to raise funds for Durrell in 2019.
