Launch of improved website makes it easier and quicker to find out more about WLT’s conservation work worldwide
Here at the World Land Trust (WLT) our web team have been working tirelessly to improve and update our website, making it simpler and quicker to discover more about the impact and scope of our work.
Getting our message across is crucial; we cannot continue to save some of the most threatened habitats and wildlife on Earth without encouraging existing supporters to stay involved and attracting new support for our work.
Switching to a new Content Management System (CMS) has vastly improved the usability of WLT’s website, making it easier for supporters to find the information they are looking for. While new and updated information better showcases the success of WLT’s conservation work across the world.
Read our updated record of achievements, where we have highlighted a few of the milestones over the past 22 years that we are most proud of – from influencing governments and working to tackle climate change, to funding major land purchase and empowering local partner organisations.
Working with local people
Discover more about the partner organisations that we work with, whose dedication, skills and hard work is combating the conservation issues within their countries. Importantly, WLT does not own or run any of the nature reserves we help create; instead, we ensure that the power to protect the natural environment remains in hands of highly-respected local conservation organisations.
Species on our reserves
Learn about the fascinating animals and plants that we help to protect by browsing our updated section on Species Living in WLT Reserves. Along with great photographs, here you will find out about animal behaviour, species conservation status, and the threats to their continued survival.
Who supports WLT and why?
Find out which companies and organisations donate to WLT and why, in our section focusing on Corporate Supporters. Or discover how authors and artists support WLT through the Green Ink programme, by donating the Public Lending Rights in their books to our conservation work.
Getting our message across
WLT has created a more streamline News section that has improved usability with supporter news, general news and conservation news now combined into an overall Latest News section. This means that supporters who have subscribed to RSS feeds will now receive updates on all WLT’s news stories to keep you up-to-date with the latest information across our activities.
However, if you just want to be informed with news updates on your particular interest you will need to manually change your feed options. You can do this by:
- visiting the News section,
- clicking on any of related terms (for example Brazil) and then scrolling down to the RSS subscription at the bottom of the page, which looks like this
The new look homepage will be updated more regularly to highlight the fund-raising focus of the moment, allowing our supporters to keep up-to-date with our most urgent conservation priorities. While a more dynamic Events sections allows you to browse through our past and upcoming events, with greater use of videos and multi-media.
We encourage our supporters to share their passion for WLT’s work with friends and family, so we have made it easy to post WLT news on Facebook and Twitter by clicking the “tweet”, “like” or Google+1 buttons found at bottom of our web pages.
We hope you enjoy browsing the new website and if you have any comments or queries please contact our webmaster: [email protected]
Lastly please don’t forget to spread our message and help us save more of the world’s wild spaces. Thank you.
