Father Christmas should be a shining example to us all this year. Whilst he is dashing around on his low-carbon sleigh pulled by eight eco-friendly reindeer, we are melting the ice caps around his Arctic home and upsetting the local polar bears and snowy owls with our excessive carbon emissions! So to show Santa a little appreciation the World Land Trust has created a range of gift acres for an eco friendly Christmas.
The World Land Trust work tirelessly to protect and manage natural ecosystems of the world; purchasing endangered land and working with local communities to prevent deforestation and loss of critically endangered wildlife.
The WLT have made it possible to earmark your donation for a specific project. For example a mere £50 can purchase an acre of Elephant corridor in India or save one acre of pristine tropical rainforest in Ecuador or Brazil complete with natures rich tapestry of wildlife - all dependant on that specific acre. You could also protect the Giant Otters or Jaguars in Paraguay by purchasing an acre in the Chaco Pantanal for £50. The World Land Trust buys real acres in real places so it's possible to visit your acre on a reserve or simply track the good work being done on your behalf on the WLT website.
The list is endless and there really is something for everybody who wants to ease their conscience this Christmas. The World Land Trust gift options allows you to protect an acre of rainforest in the knowledge that you will be saving an abundance of animals ranging from lazy Sloths, bejeweled butterflies, and vibrant tree frogs to the stealthy Jaguar himself! Your gift package will contain a personalised certificate, WLT Christmas card for your message and other information on your acre and the work of the World Land Trust.
