World Land Trust launches appeal for wildlife after Nepal's earthquakes

Following recent earthquakes in Nepal, the World Land Trust (WLT) has launched an emergency appeal for funds to assist anti-poaching measures in the Nepalese national parks.

With the country’s security forces focused on humanitarian relief efforts, in the national parks endangered species such as tiger, rhino and elephant are unprotected and vulnerable to poaching.

Generations Trust made the first donation to WLT’s appeal (£10,000). These funds have been channelled to Nepal via Wildlife Trust of India (WTI), WLT’s conservation partner in India. In a concerted fundraising effort, WLT has matched a donation to Nepal’s wildlife relief effort made by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW).
