#ThanksToYou: A Celebration of Urban Nature Competition

The Museum has received funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund to support the Urban Nature Project – a national initiative designed to give people across the UK, no matter who they are or where they live, the motivation and tools to safeguard the nature in towns and cities so that people and planet can thrive together. 

We’re also turning our five-acres of outside space into a welcoming, accessible and biologically diverse green space in the heart of London.

The competition

To say thank you to the National Lottery players who helped fund the project, between 18-26 March 2023 we’re offering someone the chance to win a year's Family Membership to the Museum as well as having a square metre of the gardens sponsored in their name.

To enter you must share a photo on your Twitter or Instagram account (not as a Story), tag the Natural History Museum and include the hashtag #UrbanNaturePhoto. Photos should depict an image celebrating wildlife (animals and plants) in an urban environment with a visible National Lottery ticket. 

The photos must be posted publicly on your account between Saturday 18 March 2023 at 00.00 GMT and Sunday 26 March at 23.59 BST. The competition is open to UK residents only. Please see full terms and conditions below.
