Project Partner from Paraguay visits WLT SEARCH NEWS

Cristina de Penayo

In February, Cristina de Penayo from Guyra Paraguay spent three weeks working in the World Land Trust (WLT) office in Halesworth, Suffolk. As an Administrative Manager with Guyra Paraguay, it was particularly useful for her to be able to work alongside the WLT’s Accounts team, and the shared experiences will improve communications between our two organisations.

The WLT encourages exchange visits with our partners; while it is important for WLT staff to know what is happening in the field, it is also important for our partners to see how fundraising is carried out in the UK, and how their reports to the WLT are used.

An important aspect for Cristina, as with many of our partners, was having English lessons with a local teacher, as English is increasingly used within the conservation field. The WLT also organised visits to RSPB, BirdLife International, as well as to local nature reserves, where Cristina was lucky enough to get a glimpse of the elusive Bittern.
