World Land Trust
Grants for land purchases that contribute to biodiversity conservation
Principal Office: UK
The World Land Trust (WLT) aims to protect the world’s most biologically important and threatened wildlife by funding land purchases and protection. The WLT steers this funding through partner conservation organizations in the developing world.
Since establishment in 1989, the Trust has helped to purchase and protect over 500 thousand acres of threatened wildlife habitat.

Support for land purchase and related conservation actions. The WLT provides funding for the initial acquisition of land that has conservation importance. It also funds additional activities related to protection, biodiversity monitoring, education, outreach, habitat restoration, and species reintroduction.
WLT’s support often takes the form of corridors to connect protected areas and to strengthen wildlife conservation strategies.
The Trust works with legally registered and experienced conservation NGOs based in developing countries.
