Details: 

In July representatives of World Land Trust (WLT) attended the Armenian Street Festival in Kensington, London, for the annual celebration of Armenian culture and heritage.

The festival featured Armenian and Middle Eastern cuisine, live street entertainment, special guests and a concert at St Sarkis Armenian Church. The event is a fun, family day with a lively mix of information and entertainment including a range of stalls offering traditional Armenian food, music, dance, crafts and storytelling.

The festival is an ideal platform to showcase the importance of protecting Armenia’s threatened habitats and local wildlife, and WLT has been supporting the event since 2013. 

WLT supports conservation work in Armenia in partnership with the Foundation for the Preservation of Wildlife and Cultural Assets (FPWC). Since 2010 WLT has been funding land purchases and leases to extend FPWC’s Caucasus Wildlife Refuge, which shelters one of Armenia’s few remaining Caucasian Leopards. WLT has also provided FPWC with camera-traps and funds a team of rangers.
