World Land Trust

You are here

World Land Trust (WLT) is an international conservation charity, which protects the world’s most biologically important and threatened habitats acre by acre. Since its foundation in 1989, WLT has funded partner organisations around the world to create reserves, and give permanent protection to habitats and wildlife. World Land Trust (WLT) and its project partners have been instrumental in the purchase and protection of over 500,000 acres of tropical forest and other threatened habitats through conservation projects around the world.

The mission of the World Land Trust is:

  • To protect and sustainably manage natural ecosystems of the world. To conserve their biodiversity, with emphasis on threatened habitats and endangered species;
  • To develop partnerships with local individuals, communities and organisations to engage support and commitment among the people who live in project areas;
  • To raise awareness, in the UK and elsewhere, of the need for conservation, to improve understanding and generate support through education, information and fundraising

To date, we have raised over £21,500 for the World Land Trust, thanks to the generosity of our visitors.

Sir David Attenborough has supported World Land Trust (WLT) since it was founded in 1989 - "The money that is given to the World Land Trust, in my estimation, has more effect on the wild world than almost anything I can think of."
