Meet your favourite personality
As a once in a life-time experience, Pro Dono (a not-for-profit organisation) arranges one-to-one meetings with public figures in aid of charity. WLT are delighted to announce that through Pro Dono our supporters can now meet three of our well-known trustees and council members; Jonathan Self (journalist and author), Bruce Pearson (acclaimed wildlife artist), and Simon Barnes (Chief Sports writer for The Times newspaper and wildlife author). Meeting these inspiring people would be a unique gift.
The donation amount is agreed in advance and comes direct to WLT. Find out more by visiting the Pro Dono website.
Wildlife and landscape art
Launched on December 10, the World Land Trust gallery is a ground-breaking approach to raising funds for conservation. The opening exhibition focuses on the work of renowned Suffolk artist, Jason Gathorne-Hardy, focusing on his intimate depictions of livestock. Jason’s drawings are complemented by other wildlife and landscape artists, with a minimum of 35% of all sales going to WLT’s conservation work across the world. View the WLT gallery
Bamboo silk scarves by Liberty
These beautiful bespoke scarves were designed especially for WLT to celebrate our conservation projects while raising funds to support them. Five exclusive designs were launched in Liberty’s world-famous Scarf Hall earlier this year. We have a limited number available and while stocks last these can be purchased directly from WLT at a special price of £75, a dramatic reduction from the original retail price of £115, with all funds going directly to WLT.

Elephant Friendship Bracelets
To help raise funds to protect the Asian Elephants in the wild, SHO Fine Jewellery have designed limited edition friendship bracelets for sale at around £50. The bracelets come in a selection of colours (please note cream is no longer available) and a donation is made from each purchase, with funds raised going to the WLT’s India Elephant Corridor Appeal, helping to save the Asian Elephant while protecting some of the poorest people in India.
You can buy the friendship bracelets from the SHO Fine Jewellery website.
Children’s book The Beauty Contest at the Zoo
Celebrating his daughter’s love of animals, author Kevin Price has created an inspirational story for children which also supports WLT’s Keepers of the Wild, helping protect the environment and wildlife in nature reserves funded by WLT across the world. Written in rhyme and wonderfully illustrated by Vicky Fieldhouse, The Beauty Contest at the Zoo will capture every child’s imagination.
Order your copy directly from WLT and you will benefit from a special price of £4.50 + £2.50 P&P with WLT receiving £1.25 from each purchase. To buy your copy today contact us on 01986 874422 or send a cheque for £6.75 payable to World Land Trust Trading to: WLT, Blyth House, Bridge Street, Halesworth, Suffolk, IP19 8AB.
Kevin Price has also recently published a second children’s book, called The Silly Solar System, which is supporting WLT through Carbon Balanced Paper. This is available from www.amazon.co.uk
Round Ireland with a fridge
Tony Hawks’ film, Round Ireland with a Fridge, is an inspiring British comedy-drama based on his best-selling book. It tells the true story of a 'schoolboy bet' which resulted in Tony’s 1997 journey around Ireland as he re-evaluated his life and career, found romance, and met a wide range of bizarre characters. Order a DVD signed by Tony Hawks for £10 (including postage and packaging) and funds will go directly to supporting WLT’s conservation projects across the world.
