Meet WLT's Keepers of the Wild

Meet WLT's Keepers of the Wild

Meet the first rangers supported by WLT's Keepers of the Wild Appeal

Fund a Ranger

Since the launch of the Keepers of the Wild Appeal at the start of the year, the WLT is well on its way to funding more rangers on our project partners' reserves.

Our first Keeper of the Wild Manuk Manukyan works for one of our newest partners, FPWC in Armenia and will ensure the protection of FPWC's Buffer Zone Reserve. Galo Vélez from Fundación Jocotoco and José Manchay who works for NCI Ecuador will be able to continue protecting threatened Ecuadorian habitats for another year thanks to WLT funding.

We look forward to hearing Manuk, Galo and José's updates from the field soon.

Camera trap photography competition 2011

Camera trap photography competition 2011

The WLT is partnering with BBC Wildlife magazine for a second year running on the Camera-trap Photography Competition.

The 2010 competition was a great success and although it was the first time such a competition had been held, it received an impressive 700 entries.

In addition to highlighting interesting and unseen animal behaviour, the competition also makes a real contribution to conservation as the winner receives funding for their conservation project rather than as an individual prize. Good luck if you enter the competition this year.

Rare warbler spotted on Ecuadorian reserve

3 Cerulean Warblers found on Rio Anzu Reserve

WLT was pleased to hear that not one but three male Cerulean Warblers were spotted on Ecuadorian partner, EcoMinga's Rio Anzu reserve (left).

The species is said to be one of the fastest declining neo-tropical migrants and is listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List, so it is very positive news that it will be protected during its winter visit to the reserve in Ecuador.
