Big Match Fortnight exceeds expections

Following the great success of Big Match Fortnight, World Land Trust is making great progress in safeguarding the Keruak Corridor in Sabah, north east Borneo.

We still need to raise £275,000 to reach our overall goal of £1 million to complete the protection of the corridor. We shall be doing all we can to raise these funds over the next few months and we are confident that we shall meet our target, based on the support received so far.

WLT-US changes its name to Rainforest Trust: the partnership continues

World Land Trust-US (WLT-US) has become the Rainforest Trust, following a decision by its board that a different name would better reflect their aims. Dr Paul Salaman, formerly Chief Executive of WLT-US and now Chief Executive of Rainforest Trust, said: “While our name has changed, our mission has not. Our dedication to protecting threatened places and species remains as solid as ever, as does our commitment to being one of the most cost-effective conservation organisations on the ground. We will retain close ties with World Land Trust."
