Why we chose the World Land Trust to start our December Giving Count Down
December Giving Count Down - Jungle Protection and Sustainability with the World Land Trust
As we approach Christmas, we start our December charity giving countdown. Three days of giving and reflection, before we close for the holidays. In the last five years our December giving has helped homeless charities, sustainable startups, water charities and initiatives that either help the planet, nature and people who need a way to get back on their feet.
This year is no different, or maybe it is. This time we have decided to support three charities, rather than one. So today we highlight the first one, with more to come…
Protecting the future of species and the planet by protecting crucial areas of land
Since its foundation in 1989, the World Land Trust has funded partner organisations around the world to create reserves and give permanent protection to habitats and wildlife.
To date, WLT has already helped secure more than 700,000 acres of threatened habitat in 20 countries.
In that respect the organisation ties in very well to our values. As our clients are well aware, we believe that humanity should protect the environment we live in, become smarter in how we use and re-use resources with a focus on minimising our impact. Our role is to stimulate better product design, new applications of technology and general sustainability practices.
As Sir David Attenborough testifies, there are few ways to make a more significant impact than to set aside or regenerate land that would otherwise be under threat.
That principle is one that we support. Our donation went to the fund which will buy more than 8000 acres of land in Belize. It will help to protect the habitat of the Jaguar and all other species that live around it.
We encourage anyone that is interested in protecting the natural world to check out the World Land Trust as well. If you have not decided what to give one or more of your loved ones at Christmas yet, why not give an acre of protected land to help this great charity achieve its admirable goals?
We will be back tomorrow with our 2nd day of charity giving… the countdown to our holiday break has begun!
