Rainforest Trust Overview
Rainforest Trust (formerly World Land Trust-US) works by buying land to conserve rainforests and other biologically rich areas to protect resources of international value while providing local benefits. WLT-US supports local conservation organizations to purchase and protect the most important areas for biodiversity conservation in Latin America, targeting private lands that conserve rare or endangered species and are also specially priced (our purchases average $100 per acre) so that a minimum amount of funds preserve high priority areas. World Land Trust-US also helps to protect tropical park and reserve management to ensure that protected areas continue to preserve the species and natural resources for which they were created.
To date, we have secured more than 7 million acres across Latin America. In 2012, we focused our efforts in Colombia, Peru, Paraguay, and Brazil ensuring that the last tracts of both the Amazon and Atlantic forests were taken off the market and turned into protected, guarded reserves for all to enjoy.
