Wirral Walk for Wildlife

We will walk along the Wirral Coast line from New Brighton to Wirral Country Park Thurstaston…in silence. the walk will be part bold statement of the silence of nature, part peaceful protest, healing meditative walk to observe and reflect. Participants are encouraged to make or bring banners so there is a message to the public to show who are the organisations representing and supporting each other as well as facts with impacts relating to this topic. This event will be open to the public to be involved. The more the better.

The event will be twofold: Firstly, the purpose of the silent walk is to make a bold statement about the loss of habits, the lack of biodiversity of our countryside, the impact human activity is having on wildlife. The silence represents the affects of species decline and die-offs (nod to Silent Spring by Rachel Carson), extinction rates, of which is largely due to anthropological impacts.
The second is to create and develop more unity, cohesion and solidarity among the organisations involved with tackling these issues, those finding solutions, sharing good practice, and inevitably improving our green spaces and habitats for wildlife.

At the end of the walk I would like for as many organisations as possible to take a few minutes to share a few words about relevant data and how their organisations are working to find solutions and what we can do to help. This will take place outside, weather permitting, at the Wirral Country Park Thurstaston, and inside the lecture hall if the weather doesn’t look so good.
