Virtual events for bugs

Virtual sponsored challenges are a great way to stay active and help wildlife

Whether you are running, walking or swimming in your local area or even your garden you can keep healthy and raise funds for bugs.

The money that you raise could buy wildflower seed to add pollinator habitat to our B-Lines network, dig ponds for dragonflies and other freshwater invertebrates, or support vital research into how to save some of our most threatened species.

Remember you can set up branded fundraising pages with Buglife here.

You could set your own challenge such as walking  virtual Pennine way over a period of months even posting pictures of key landmarks you would pass as you reach various milestones. You could measure out a route to run a half marathon or swim the Bristol Channel at the local swimming pool via counting lengths.


Alternatively there ae many websites that offer the opportunity to undertake virtual challenges such as:

Race at your pace

Conqueror events
