Rainforest is being destroyed at an unprecedented rate, causing mass extinctions and climate change. We must act now to buy and save the most important and unique areas of rainforest before they are lost forever.
WLT-US buys real acres in real places and protects them forever. By targeting the highest priority areas and taking these areas off the market for destruction, we can save countless species and critical habitats that are often protected nowhere else. We are highly efficient and able to purchase and protect private lands with rainforest for $100 an acre or less. We focus actions on key areas under imminent threat that often represent the last surviving habitat for threatened species. We then move swiftly to protect these biodiversity treasures before they are lost. World Land Trust-US has protected over 600,000 acres of rainforests and other threatened habitats to protect the most endangered species forever.
