For every £100, one acre of habitat can be bought and protected.

A donation of £25 will save 1,000m² for wildlife.


We work with partner organisations across the world to help fund land purchase and create nature reserves to protect threatened habitats and wildlife. In some countries, we can save an acre of threatened habitat for an average of £100. You can donate as little £25 and buy a quarter of an acre – helping us create or extend our reserves and save the planet’s threatened wilderness.

Saving Mexico's Ancient Forests

An area of 578 acres has just become available to purchase and protect in the heart of Mexico, and we are raising funds to save the ancient forest habitat for vulnerable wildlife.

These forests are home to a rich diversity of Central American wildlife, from one of the world’s smallest birds, the Bumblebee Hummingbird, to six cat species including Jaguar and Puma and several rare and threatened amphibian species. Without protection, the forests of Sierra Gorda in Central Mexico are threatened by deforestation for agriculture, cattle ranching and manmade fires.
