Media Bounty successfully completes trek to fundraise for long-term charity partner World Land Trust

by Emma Tozer - September, 2018

After 16 bridges, 25 kilometres and dodging quite a few tourists, our intrepid team of trekkers – Anna, Annie, Charlie, Emma, Jake, Jess and Magda – successfully completed the Thames Bridges Trek to fundraise for our long-term charity partner, World Land Trust (WLT), on Saturday.

Donations are still coming in, but our fundraising total currently stands in excess of £2,250. This money will be channelled into World Land Trust’s work in Ecuador, where they are funding land purchase in the Nangaritza Valley. This project is in partnership with local NGO, NCEcuador, in the south east of the country.

The forest in the Nangaritza Valley is home to jaguars, spectacled bears, tapirs and countless species of frogs and birds. Unfortunately they are being threatened by uncontrolled mining and deforestation.

World Land Trust has been Media Bounty’s charity partner since the agency’s inception, almost ten years ago. WLT work with local NGOs across the globe to protect biologically important and critically threatened habitat acre by acre. Their patrons include: Sir David Attenborough, Chris Packham and Steve Backshall.

HUGE thanks to all that have sponsored and supported us so far! If you’d still like to donate, you can find our Just Giving page here.
