This Easter, World Land Trust Patron and wildlife presenter Steve Backshall and his wife, Olympic champion rower Helen Glover, will be kayaking 125 miles non-stop from Devizes in Wiltshire to the Houses of Parliament at Westminster in the 'Canoeists' Everest'.

They are taking part to raise funds for WLT to protect a section of rainforest in Malaysian Borneo, saving it from being cut down to make way for oil palm plantations and safeguarding a wealth of  threatened wildlife found there, including Bornean Orang-utans, Pygmy Elephants, Proboscis Monkeys and Sunda Pangolins.
