Media Bounty walking the Thames to raise money for World Land Trust

by Emma Tozer - May, 2018

To mark Media Bounty’s 10th year of supporting international conservation charity, World Land Trust, a team of 9 members of staff will be attempting the gruelling Thames Bridges Trek on 8th September. The aim is to raise money for a remarkable conservation project in the biodiverse and picturesque Nangaritza Valley of Ecuador.

The Nangaritza Valley is situated in southern Ecuador, near the border with Peru, and is the last remaining extensive expanse of forest connecting the Andes with the Amazon basin. Home to jaguar, mountain tapir, spectacled bear, and many rare frogs and birds, as well as the Shuar indigenous tribe, it’s now critically threatened by uncontrolled mining, as well as illegal logging. World Land Trust is now urgently working in partnership with local NGO, NCE Ecuador, to protect this land in perpetuity.

You may not have heard of World Land Trust, but their list of patrons reads like a who’s who of conservation A-listers: Sir David Attenborough, Chris Packham and Steve Backshall; and they have pioneered countless conservation initiatives over the years.

Working with local NGOs across the globe to protect some of the planet’s most biodiverse and critically threatened habitats acre by acre, World Land Trust supports projects in more than 20 countries, including Argentina, Armenia, Belize, Bolivia, Brazil, Guatemala, India, Malaysia, Mexico and Paraguay.

Supporting environmental causes is part of our agency DNA at Media Bounty, and we have supported World Land Trust, since our inception. Whether it’s donating money to buy acres for every project we take on through their Buy an Acre scheme, or engaging in pro-bono marketing work, we are immensely proud of our long-standing relationship with this ground-breaking charity.
