Saving threatened habitats worldwide

World Land Trust Conservation Projects

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. Unlike other charities, your donation really will save real acres in real places.

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.
