About the World Land Trust
What is the World Land Trust?
The 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 (as the World Wide Land Conservation Trust), the WLT has funded partner organisations around the world to create reserves, and give permanent protection to habitat and their wildlife.
The World Land Trust, based in Halesworth, Suffolk, is run by a small number of staff and interns, many of whom work part-time. Find out more about the people who work for and support the WLT:
How the WLT works
The WLT has a policy of working with local partner organisations, and the Trust does not normally play a direct role in the ownership or the management of the land it conserves.
