Save an acre of rainforest and all the wildlife that goes with it

Why not give the world a gift – save an acre of rainforest!

If you are looking for unusual gifts – save an acre of tropical rainforest in Ecuador. Or save coastal steppe in Patagonia, or elephant habitat in India.

Not only is saving an acre a great and unusual gift for friends or loved ones, but your donation will also help safeguard some of the most threatened animals and plants on the planet – so you will literally be giving a gift to the world. It's also a great way to offest carbon emissions!

Since 1989, the World Land Trust has helped save over 300,000 acres of threatened wildlife habitat worldwide. You can help save even more and give an original present at the same time. The world land trust currently has projects in South America and India, the success of which are dependent on generous support from individuals.

You can choose which one of several conservation projects to donate to – £25 will save half a real acre of wilderness in a Real place - forever - together with all the wildlife that depends upon it.

A perfect, original present for an animal or nature lover.
