Twitter is a fantastic place to connect with other people who share your passion for wildlife, nature and the outdoors. It’s perfect for sharing pictures of your finds and gettign help with identifying plants and animals, or using your skills to help others.
If you are new to Twitter, a good place to start (once you’ve signed up) is to follow our lovely community @365DaysWild. Our followers enjoy sharing everyday experiences as well as exotic encounters with wildlife, and it can be very inspiring to see what other people are up to around the country and the world!
In the UK, you might also like to follow your local Wildlife Trust – you can find out which one is established nearest to you here.
Whatever you are most interested in, there are expert individuals and organisations who can help you identify your finds, or help to answer questions and improve your knowledge. Here are some examples to get you started!
