Give us habitats, somewhere to live - please help create habitat or protect existing habitats
A charity close to my heart is the World Land Trust. It is an international conservation charity, and it aims to protect the world's most biologically important and threatened habitats acre by acre.
Founded in 1989, it has funded partner organisations to create reserves and give protection to habitats and the wildlife there.
Sir David Attenborough is a Patron, along with David Gower and Chris Packham.
Achievements of the World Land Trust include:
How you can get involved:
Plant a tree for £5 or plant five trees as a gift for a minimum of £25 - find out more here
Give to the current appeal, Forests in the Sky, in Ecuador to create reserves to protect the home of species such as the Spectacled Bear and the Mountain Tapir.
Give a "Buy an Acre" donation (minimum of £25) - how much this land buys depends on where in the world it is doing the buying because land prices vary
Give to the Action Fund Appeal - your donation will go to the project where money is most urgently needed
Support the Keepers in the Wild Appeal. This provides funds for the World Land Trust's partners to employ local people to protect reserves funded by the trust. Rangers protect the reserves, and run education programmes, raising environmental awareness in local communities. On World Ranger Day, 31 July 2015, WLT launched a new appeal - Keepers of the Wild 2020 - to raise £750,000 to guarantee the programme between 2016 and 2020. Support this appeal here
