How to save rainforest this Christmas

Top of the tree: a WLT gift donation

Gift Certificate

Make a donation of £25 or more and dedicate it as a gift. Your gift recipient will receive a beautiful WLT Gift Pack with a Certificate.

Your donation will be used to secure real land which will be included in a nature reserve, for the benefit of wildlife. The best gift you can give to friends and the earth.
Give the Gift of Rainforest »

Top tip: Treat friends to a day off Christmas shopping: Add rainforest acres to your own wishlist and create a fundraising page for your friends and family to donate - and leave you a Christmas message instead of sending a card.

Other gifts that help save rainforest

Rainforest Friends, cuddly soft toys, and other gifts that support the World Land Trust

We have put together a list of more traditional gifts, for those who might not appreciate a wildlife gift acre.

Including Rainforest Friends soft toys (pictured), Organic Meltdown chocolate, Puro fairtrade coffee and more (with special offer prices for WLT supporters), you can buy these products safe in the knowledge that you will still support the WLT’s work to save wildlife habitats: The companies listed will make a donation from each sale to the World Land Trust to buy acres and save wildlife habitat.

What is the difference between WLT News and the eBulletin?
WLT News

Did you know that WLT News, our twice-yearly printed newsletter, contains in-depth project updates, questions from supporters, quizzes and more? This makes it a great complement to the more bite-sized updates of our eBulletins. You can read WLT News online, or contact the Trust to receive it by post.

The latest WLT News includes a competition to win a bar of Organic Meltdown chocolate, so it's well worth checking it out!

Season's Greetings from the WLT team

Thanks to the generous support from our individual and corporate donors in 2009, the Trust is going from strength to strength despite the recession. But there is a much more to do, not least in the Paraguayan Chaco, where deforestation of astronomical proportions is currently taking place. With your continued support in 2010 we can ensure that vital habitat in the Chaco and our other project areas receive protection. Thank you all, for your help, this year, and in the future.

With best wishes for the New Year, from us all at World Land Trust
