Together, let’s make it count
The world’s largest garden wildlife survey returns this weekend, with the RSPB calling on people across the UK to help wildlife and support their own wellbeing by spending one hour taking part in Big Garden Birdwatch 2023.
Increasing evidence shows spending time outdoors and making a greater connection with nature can help to combat conditions including stress, anxiety, fatigue and depression.
A new YouGov poll commissioned by the RSPB found 91% of UK adults agree that seeing birds and hearing birdsong have a positive impact on mental health and wellbeing. The survey also found a similar number of people (88%) feel spending time outdoors enjoying the natural world is important to them, with more than half stating it is very important (53%).
This weekend (January 27-29) hundreds of thousands of people will make that special link with wildlife on their doorstep, and at the same time help the RSPB to build a greater understanding of how the UK’s garden birds are faring.
