Over Three Decades
of habitat protection

World Land Trust (WLT) pioneered the Buy an Acre concept of buying land for conservation, starting in 1989, and has, since then, funded ground-breaking habitat protection for more than 25 years, with an impressive track record of achievements.

World Land Trust and its overseas project partners have been instrumental in the purchase and protection of more than 770,000 acres of tropical forest and other threatened habitats, and together ensure that more than four million acres of land is managed under active protection worldwide.

Tree Hugger Travel is Currently Supporting Two Projects

1. Project Mexico:
NORTHERN JAGUAR RESERVE

The reserve lies just 270 km from the border with the United States in the Mexican state of Sorona.

World Land Trust and local project partner Naturalia aim to expand and connect the Northern Jaguar Reserve with land currently owned by Naturalia. This will increase the Jaguars protected area by an additional 7,700 acres and create new safe passage for an even greater number of species including  Puma, Bobcats, and Ocelots.

2. Project Zambia:
Kasanka National Park

Home of the largest mammal migration on earth. The spectacle of Kasanka is witnessed alongside the first rains of the wet season when the migration of over 10 million Straw-coloured Fruit Bats descend into just a few hectares of Mushitu Swamp Forest. 

The migration attracts a gathering of predators and scavengers such as Leopard, Crocodiles, Martial Eagles, Pythons, and more.

World land Trust with partner organisation Kasanka Trust aim to secure a 99 year lease of the 941 acre Mulaushi Reserve that directly borders the eastern boundary of the park.
