The RSPB is asking people to share their experiences of the things they have noticed in their world that are different during lockdown.
From enjoying the uplifting sound of birdsong through an open window, to getting a welcome dose of fresh air and exercise in a local park, many people have found solace in nature and had time to notice what’s going on around them.
The bird charity’s head of community empowerment, Adam Murray, said:“Connecting with the natural world is more important than ever.
“Over the last few months, as we juggled work, family life and wellbeing, all from the confines of home, the natural world became a playground, a gym, a tonic, and much more besides.
“But while our lives have changed, the threats to nature have not gone away.
“We’d love you to share the new things you have noticed and started to appreciate more in your world – large and small. Whether it’s cleaner air, the wildlife in your local park or getting creative, we’d love to hear about it. We want to know what you’ve started to value during these strange times.”
To get involved, people should share their stories and photos using #MyWorldNow on social media.
Later in the summer, the RSPB will be celebrating these stories from across the UK and sharing ideas to help people take action for the things they value.
