Conservation Projects by the World Land Trust
World Land Trust (WLT) and its project partners have been instrumental in the purchase and protection of over 500,000 acres of tropical forest and other threatened habitats through conservation projects around the world. The WLT supports many other activities and initiatives, including awareness-raising and educating future conservationists.
Support the WLT's most urgent conservation projects that include: the Buy an Acre projects, Keepers of the Wild programme, Plant a Tree with WLT, and the Special Appeal.
WLT works with project partners in many different countries. Find out more about the habitats and wildlife that we are helping to protect.
An important part of WLT’s work is to protect the biodiversity and natural resources within the reserves we have helped create. Find out about our Carbon Balanced Programme, REDD+ projects and how the WLT protects natural resources.
WLT has successfully completed conservation projects which continue to be managed by our project partners. Find out about how WLT and its project partners have successfully saved acres of forest and other wildlife habitats.
WLT streams live footage from the rainforest over three different webcams in Ecuador and Brazil. Find out more about the webcams and the wildlife you can expect to see.
The Wild Spaces Programme enacourages zoos and aquariums to get involved in in situ wildlife conservation. The Programme includes the BIAZA Reserve Project, in which British and Irish zoos raised funds to create a new reserve in Brazil.
Supported by the Natural History Book Service, the WLT Books for Conservation Programme provides essential text-books and field guides to conservation organisations in developing countries, free of charge.
Over the years the WLT has arranged many training programmes and workshops for conservation organisations worldwide. In 2010 WLT and IUCN NL assisted African NGOs through the training programme Using carbon as a funding mechanism for conservation: Is REDD+ right for you?
WLT helps save endangered plants and animals by protecting habitat through its worldwide conservation projects. Some of these species are new to science, and are unique to the habitats saved by WLT funded land purchase.

Project Selection Criteria and Application Procedure
The WLT supports a relatively small number of projects to ensure their success and impeccable management. For the same reason the projects we support have been chosen using stringent project selection criteria.
