WLT began its commitment to this work in 2008, when the Trust signed a Tri-partite Agreement with Paraguayan partner organisation Guyra Paraguay and the Ministry of the Environment, SEAM. This heralded the commencement of an ambitious 10 Year programme to protect over 2.5 million acres of critical habitat in three Protected Areas of northern Paraguay.
Although they are called Protected Areas, there are no funds available in Paraguay to protect and consequently they are critically threatened and will still suffer as a result of poaching and habitat loss if we cannot find a way of adequately patrolling them.
Funds are urgently needed to employ Park Guards and provide them with equipment to protect this vast area of wilderness that is so important for wildlife.
Consisting of a fabulously illustrated folder packed with fact sheets, fundraising ideas, a poster and an enhanced version of the Learning about Rainforests CD, Running in the Corridors is ideal for teaching Key stages 1 and 2 about the importance of wildlife corridors, whilst fundraising to protect their own particular animals.
You can now chat to other users about the wildlife you have seen live in the Rainforest via the webcams. Coming up: In the coming weeks wildlife experts will be appearing to answer your questions about the webcams, the wildlife you can see and work of WLT.
From Chelsea Flower Show to Chester Tropical Realm, the rebuild of WLT's RHS Chelsea Flower Show Exhibit at Chester came to a halt in June. This was not due to usual reasons that builders give but because a rare Victoria Crowned Pigeon was nesting in the very same place that had been chosen for the exhibit.
This beautiful species is one of the many free flying birds in the Tropical Realm, all of which will be able to fly in and out of the exhibit once the chick is successfully reared.
This year we will be accompanied by representatives from project partners Guyra Paraguay and REGUA, Brazil and we will have footage from our Webcam in the Forest. We look forward to meeting you and will have a cup of freshly ground PURO coffee waiting.
