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.

The Royal Parks half marathon takes place in October 2010 and sees hundreds of runners taking in the beautiful views of London's magnificent Royal Parks. Starting out at Hyde Park, this unusual half marathon is the ideal way to set yourself a fitness challenge and see the glorious colours of autumn in London at the same time.

World Land Trust 'Run for a Ranger' Team Page
This year World Land Trust (WLT) has a team of staff and supporters running in the Royal Parks Half Marathon.
World Land Trust is an international conservation organisation which raises funds for land purchase and protection. Although over 400,000 acres of threatend wildlife habitat have already been secured, this habitat still needs continued protection.
Rangers play a key part in this protection and the World Land Trust team is hoping to raise enough funds to assist our project partners REGUA, Brazil in funding the salary of a Reserve Ranger for a whole year.
