Sir David Attenborough tells the story of WLT on film SEARCH NEWS

Sir David Attenborough.

World Land Trust (WLT) has released a short film, narrated by Sir David Attenborough, a Patron since 2003.

WLT has saved more than half a million acres of threatened habit in the past 25 years, working through its network of 30 conservation partners in 20 countries.

As Sir David explains: “Conservation has been transformed, and WLT is at one of the cutting edges of that transformation. WLT now is a major factor in many parts of the world, channelling funds, help and expertise into those areas where they are so badly needed, but leaving the ultimate control with the people that live on that land 365 days of the year.”

Sir David is one of WLT’s staunchest supporters: “If there is one shaft of light and hope in looking ahead at what’s going to happen, it is in my view that which you see when you see the history of WLT,” he says in the film.
