Barba Azul Nature Reserve doubles in size

A recent land purchase part funded by Buy an Acre funds from World Land Trust (WLT) has more than doubled the size of Barba Azul Nature Reserve in the heart of Bolivia's Beni savanna. Asociación Armonía, WLT's Bolivian conservation partner, has purchased 14,827 acres (6,000 hectares) of savanna and palm forest island habitat.

Donations to WLT's Buy an Acre appeal are used to purchase land for conservation in Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Mexico.
