Saving pristine rainforest is the perfect Green Christmas Gift

Save Rainforest this Christmas

Buy a different tree this Christmas and Save acres of Rainforest with the World Land Trust.

This year give something unique for Christmas. Receiving an acre of rainforest truly is a green Christmas gift that will last forever, as your donation will be used to save threatened rainforest as part of a permanent wildlife reserve.

Up to 31st of December WLT can still save an acre of rainforest for as little as £50 (£25 for half an acre) in Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador and Paraguay. However, due to rapid escalation in land prices the cost will rise to £100 an acre in the new year.

So this Christmas is the ideal time to save more acres of some of the worlds most threatened wildlife habitats.

2011 Appeal: Keepers of the Wild
New appeal for 2011: Keepers of the Wild

In January 2011, the WLT will launch a new appeal: Keepers of the Wild, and the fundraising focus for the whole year will be to fund more rangers in our partners' reserves.

Since 1989 the WLT has worked with in-country partners to buy acres of threatened habitat for conservation. But now our partners need help to continue the protection of the reserves we have created.

The most obvious way to do this is to have rangers in the field, providing a permanent deterrent for poachers and keeping the reserve boundaries secure. More information on how you can help with this appeal will follow in the new year.
