We know how legacies can transform our work. Gifts in wills have helped us to protect rainforest in Ecuador for Spectacled Bear, Ocelot and Jaguar and to complete a corridor for Orang-utans along the Kinabatangan River in Borneo.
“The money that is given to the World Land Trust, in my estimation, has more effect on the wild world than almost anything I can think of.”
Sir David Attenborough, WLT Patron
“Sid Templer's legacy has been a milestone in our history.”
Alberto Yanosky, Executive Director, Guyra Paraguay
Help World Land Trust save some of the last wild places on Earth for generations to come
A gift in 2004 gave WLT the chance to save the 8,650 acre Sid Templer Reserve in Paraguay. The catalyst for the creation of the vast Chaco-Pantanal reserve that now surrounds it, it offers safe haven for Giant Armadillo, Giant Anteater and the swarms of migrating birds that rely on the Pantanal wetlands.
World Land Trust is working around the world to find new partner organisations, fresh ways to achieve our aims and to protect an ever greater area and variety of threatened habitats.
Our current priorities include linking isolated reserves to connect populations of Indian Elephants, protecting the wild mountain homelands of the Caucasian Leopard in Armenia, and supporting the community-led establishment of private conservation areas across the Peruvian Andes.
We invite you to join us in securing a future for wilderness worldwide.
Kamila’s Story—A World Land Trust Supporter
This film, Kamila’s Story, is a moving tribute to someone determined to live life to the full and to leave a lasting legacy. Kamila’s relationship with WLT began in the autumn of 2014 when she contacted the Trust with a view to making a bequest.
Kamila was first motivated to leave money to WLT because of the Trust’s connection with Sir David Attenborough, a Patron of the Trust since 2003. On meeting staff and getting to know more about the Trust she was pleased to learn about WLT’s holistic approach to conservation. During her career Kamila worked with the community and voluntary sector, and she approves of the social dimension of the Trust’s work
“I'm very pleased to leave a legacy to World Land Trust. Half will go on core costs and half will conserve land in Central or South America. I find WLT inspiring, particularly its work with partners worldwide.”
