Saving threatened habitats worldwide

Going for Gold

3 June, 2010 - 12:41 -- John Burton

Last week was an amazing week for the World Land Trust and some of its sponsors. For the first time ever we exhibited at the prestigious Chelsea Flower Show – probably the most important of its kind in the World.

Our exhibit was designed to bring attention to the plight of the Atlantic Rainforest, and also to generate publicity for the Trust's work in Argentina (Misiones Province), Brazil (REGUA Reserve) and Paraguay (San Rafael). It achieved both these objectives, and in addition we won a Gold Medal and a lump of glass (the latter was for being best in the category of ‘Continuous Learning’).  All the costs of the exhibition were covered by our sponsors, and if you want to know more about it please contact us to request a copy of the booklet, produced especially for the Chelsea Flower Show.

Meanwhile back at the Trust, we are all feeling rather exhausted – it’s a considerable amount of effort to get up to the Gold Standard, and on top of that we have our AGM in a couple off weeks time, and throughout this period we have also been involved with the Elephant parade going on in London.  So, while I aim to blog once a week, my apologies to anyone who follows me, there often just isn’t the time to write – there’s often something more urgent. That’s because there is so much going on at the WLT.

Your support – and it is increasing steadily, year on year, means that we are able to fund more and more land purchases. So please keep spreading the word.
