World Land Trust

Founded in 1989 in England, the World Land Trust (WLT) has been working to preserve the world’s most biologically important and threatened lands. So far, the WLT has saved over 375,000 acres (1518 square km) of wildlife habitats, including tropical forests, coastal steppes, and wetlands. Many of these habitats are orchid hot-spots, such as rainforests in Belize, Costa Rica, Ecuador, and the Philippines. With their “Save an Acre of Rainforest” campaign, WLT has also been able to protect valuable orchid habitats in Brazil, India, Malaysia, and Mexico.

The WLT contributes to educational projects, providing conservation materials to students and field guides that are essential for research. WLT’s work benefits us all, not only by saving endangered species, but also by regenerating important wildlife habitat that removes greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.
