This is a challenge for all ages and abilities. All you need to do is think of an activity based around the numbers 26 or 2.6 that suits your skills and complete it on or from Sunday 26 April.

This could be something as simple as pledging to run 2.6 miles as your daily exercise to doing 26 species-inspired yoga poses or juggling for 26 minutes (or maybe just 2.6 minutes) non-stop. More ideas and inspiration

And don’t worry if you’re not able to get out your house or flat for now – you can do 

your 2.6 challenge anywhere inside too! There are no rules, apart from the Government guidelines on how to exercise safely during this time. Whatever you can do, you can be a part of it – the main thing is to get active, have fun and pledge whatever.  

HOW TO TAKE PART?

1. Choose your 26 or 2.6-related activity

2. Set up a fundraising page or donate any amount you like to take part 

3. Share your plans on social media using #TwoPointSixChallenge and tagging @wwf_UK. Keep us updated with how you get on during and after your challenge too! 

4. Take on your challenge on or around 26 April   

How your money can help

  • £2 could pay for a flipper tag for a turtle so that it can be uniquely identified by the turtle conservation groups 

  • £3 could pay for one bamboo seedling to be planted in degraded panda habitat 

  • £3 could pay for the batteries used in one camera trap to monitor jaguars (these batteries last around 90 days)
  • £25 could pay for one solar power torch for farmers to scare elephants / safely enable people to move at night without coming into contact with elephants in the Mara
