A legacy of £6,350 from the Hugh Anderson Legacy Trust has been made to World Land Trust (WLT) specifically for Jaguar conservation.
Jaguars are present on many WLT-funded reserves in Central and South America and, as keystone species, they play an important role in stabilizing ecosystems and regulating the populations of the animals they hunt.
WLT will use these funds to purchase and protect critically threatened tropical forest habitat to conserve Jaguars, and as this is an annual bequest it means that we can plan Jaguar conservation activities for the future knowing that these funds are pledged.
This legacy donation is particularly timely as it coincides with the start of Remember A Charity in your Will Week on 9 September 2013, which aims to raise awareness of the importance of legacy giving.
WLT encourages everyone to think about their legacy and to contact their favourite charities during the week to find out how to leave a lasting bequest. Remembering a charity in your will is a straightforward process, which can sometimes lead to inheritance tax advantages.
If you are thinking about leaving a donation to WLT in your will, or would like more information, please contact John Burton, WLT Chief Executive, by phone (01986 874422) or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Or you can write to him at WLT, Blyth House, Bridge Street, Halesworth IP19 8AB.
