*Latest additions to the World Land Trust website: *
The World Land Trust (WLT) was one of the first organisations in the world focusing specifically on the conservation of threatened habitats through land purchase. While the WLT is not claiming that land purchase is a permanent solution to saving the world’s rainforests, it is nevertheless a method of creating, relatively rapidly, protected reserves in areas under imminent threat of destruction. In our policy section of the website you can learn more about the Trust’s approach to land purchase as a conservation tool, including the involvement of local communities and the rights of indigenous people.
