An Orang-utan called Joan
was in danger of losing her home,
she called WLT
to help save her trees,
and now she has forests to roam.
World Land Trust has a mission succinct:
Men and all other species are linked
By protecting them all
Whether giant or small
We pay homage to those now extinct
There was a young mover and shaker
who knew nothing of ‘acre by acre’
but when left on the shelf
she re-cycled herself,
now she’s saving the world for her Maker.
