We save threatened rainforest and wilderness around the world, working with local NGOs to purchase land and create permanent reserve areas. Since its foundation in 1989 World Land Trust has helped to protect over 500,000 acres of the world's wild places against the pressure of expanding human agriculture and population.

Earth Odyssey Expedition
100,000 kilometre solo world circumnavigation by human and wind power in support of the World Land Trust
On December 10, 2006, I set off from Melbourne, Australia on a solo expedition to circumnavigate the planet by human and wind power. Over the course of the journey I will cycle, sail, paddle and row across six continents, fifty countries, five seas and two oceans.
The stimulus for undertaking this journey is my interest in the environment and to experience the great wilderness areas of the planet. With a love of nature also comes a deep concern for the state of the global environment, so I am doing this journey in support of the international conservation organisation the World Land Trust, which I believe is doing vitally important conservation work around the globe by taking direct action to save rainforest and other wildlife habitats.
