Forests in the Sky
The current exhibition also features a study of an Andean Cock-of-the-rock (Rupicola peruvianus) by regular exhibitor Steve Cale. With its bright orange plumage, this spectacular bird is a native of the Andean cloud forests and the image highlights WLT’s special appeal for Big Match Fortnight 2015.
WLT’s Forests in the Sky Appeal aims to raise £500,000 to save threatened habitat in the Andean cloud forests of central Ecuador. All donations to the appeal during Big Match Fortnight (1-15 October 2015) will be doubled thanks to match funding pledged in advance by a small group of generous donors.

About the gallery
World Land Trust Art Gallery specialises in wildlife and landscape art. The gallery provides a small income for the Trust’s charitable work and, through its programme of temporary exhibitions, the gallery raises awareness of wildlife and landscape conservation.
In 2014 World Land Trust entered into an innovative partnership with the Wildlife Art Gallery, Lavenham. The result has been a series of dynamic and successful exhibitions curated by Andrew Haslen and Amie Haslen. The partnership is continuing in 2015.
World Land Trust first opened the gallery in its headquarters in Halesworth, north east Suffolk, in 2011.
