Fearless climber takes on Lake District peaks to raise £1,100 for the life of Borneo

“I decided to help protect the planet because it is being destroyed by people and it cannot save itself, and I learned that it’s easier to try fundraising than I thought”

WLT would like to extend a big thank-you to Tobias, the intrepid climber who took on more than 10 Lake District peaks during summer 2021 so that our partner HUTAN could extend a network of protected corridors of orangutan habitat in Borneo.

Tobias thought he’d raise £500 towards the protection of the Bornean rainforest he’d visited two years before – and yet he ended up raising £1,100 (or 220% of his target)! We at WLT thought our Borneo appeal would raise enough (£150,000) to save two plots of rainforest. Thanks to people like Tobias, the £420,000 we raised will save up to five.

Tobias and all our other supporters are the living proof: when we act to save nature, we make far more impact than we think.
