Saving the Barbacoas’ Forests and Wetlands

WLT and Fundacion Biodiversa Colombia (FBC) are working together to save 642 acres (260 hectares) of lowland forest and wetlands in the Barbacoas of the middle-Magdalena valley.

With your help, we are raising £295,000 to ensure these precious habitats are safe. This region has suffered extreme deforestation and degradation, with up to 90 per cent of the original forests lost. Protecting the Barbacoas ensures that the remaining forests and wetlands survive.

Following the British Government’s guidance from the press briefing on Monday 16 March, WLT have made the decision to close our office and move our staff to remote working. We are a small team, and our priority is to protect the health of our staff and their families.

As a result of our decision, please be aware that we will be able to continue to offer digital gift certificates to those who require them and these will still be available in the our usual time frames.

However, since our office is closed we will regrettably be unable to provide printed certificates until the situation changes, we will however honour any requests that were already in the system prior to Wednesday 18 March 2020.

Thank you for your patience and understanding at this time and, as always, for your loyal support to our projects and partners
