Latest World Land Trust updates:

The Great Ape Debate, taking place this Thursday (30th April) will focus on the controversy surrounding Orang-utan conservation: Is rehabilitation and reintroduction of rescued captive animals a viable way of conserving Orang-utans or would resources be better spent on the purchase, protection and recreation of their natural habitats?

This debate is being convened, and held jointly, with the World Land Trust (WLT) and the Linnean Society of London, where the event will take place. Although the debate became fully booked within days of tickets being released, those with an interest in primate conservation won't have to miss out: The whole debate will be streamed LIVE on the WLT website between 18:00-19:00 British time, and the event will also be recorded and available on the site afterwards.
