World Land Trust
Ian Smith has supported World Land Trust since 2005 and during that time have donated a wonderul £36,500. David Read, Company Secretary of Ian Smiths says “We are proud to have been key contributors to land purchase and protection in some of the world’s most threatened regions. Together with the World Land Trust we have saved tropical forest in Argentina, Ecuador and Brazil as well as crucial forest habitat for Orang-utans in Borneo. This year we are supporting them in their challenge to save Tigers and other big cats from extinction.
Nature needs big cats and big cats need big spaces
Everywhere that big cats are found they are on top of their food chains. They are ancient predators essential to the balance of their environments. Without them the tapestry of their areas they have dominated for thousands of years would collapse, leaving us with a natural world bleaker and less varied than ever before.
Outside conservation areas big cats are severely threatened by loss of habitat, human-wildlife conflict and hunting. To survive, big cats need more wildlife corridors away from humans, larger reserves and greater protection. With the funds raised World Land Trust are purchasing and protecting these corridors to ensure a safe haven for them to roam freely.
World Land Trust, together with their overseas conservation partners, protect big cats on many of their reserves and in particular funds raised are going towards a Tiger corridor into Corbett National Park in India.

Sir David Attenborough Applauds The Work Of The World Land Trust
“Tigers are magnificent creatures. It would be a tragedy of truly monumental proportions if they were to be lost to the World. Not only that, it would be totally inexcusable on our part part but if we don’t act fast to provide them with suitaable territory to live in, they will disappear. We mustn’t let that happen.
I fully support the work of the World Land Trust and their efforts to save and protect Tigers and other big cats. The money that is given to The World Land Trust, in my estimation, has more effect on wildlife than almost anything I can think of so do support The Big Cat Appeal.”
