World Land Trust & Oakshire Environmental
The World Land Trust is an international conservation charity that protects the world's most biologically significant and threatened habitats acre by acre. Through a network of established and highly respected local organisations from around the world, they fund the creation of reserves, providing permanent protection for habitats and wildlife. Sir David Attenborough has supported the work of the World Land Trust since it's foundation in 1989 and became a patron in 2003.
Our Commitment - We have committed to donating a percentage of turnover every year to the World Land Trust's Plant a Tree programme, to help global reforestation efforts, restore lost forests, repair damaged ecosystems and mitigate climate change. The World Land Trust has, so far, funded the planting of over 2 million trees!
Plant a Tree Programme - The World Land Trust works with in-country partners to protect crucial areas of land, selecting sites that are rich in biodiversity and that support long-term conservation goals to connect and enlarge protected areas. In addition, they provide support throughout the reforestation process, from the planting and care of young trees, through to their establishment as new forest habitat. Every £5 donated to the World Land Trust's Plant a Tree programme covers not just the planting of a native seedling, but also the collection of the seed, its nurturing in a nursery, and its ongoing care during the first 3-4 years of the tree's life. World Land Trust partners will even replace the sapling if it doesn't take hold.
Latest Update - We are pleased to announce that we have again increased our annual donation to the World Land Trust's plant a tree programme and have reaffirmed our commitment to donating a percentage of annual turnover. Support for Plant a Tree has resulted in the planting and protection of over 2 million trees across 5,930 acres.
