Steve Backshall, naturalist and TV presenter, has praised the generosity of everyone who donated to World Land Trust (WLT) during Big Match Fortnight 2015. The total raised during the first two weeks of October was £280,000, including match funding.
He said: “I am amazed by the support for the Forests in the Sky Appeal during Big Match Fortnight - what an achievement in just two weeks! But we still need to raise the balance and I’m hoping we can do this before Christmas. Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far.”
WLT is continuing to prioritise the Forests in the Sky Appeal: £220,000 is urgently needed to save all the target properties in the Forests in the Sky Corridor.
