World Land Trust
Here at Southern Fire Doors we have decided to choose the World Land Trust (WLT) as our charity in 2020.
As of December 2019, WLT has helped secure more than 774,282 acres of threatened habitats across 20 countries
For every door we manufacture, we will plant a tree through the World Land Trust. These tress will be planted all across the globe.
Where do they work?
Habitat loss is one of the greatest threats to wildlife worldwide, and WLT works with its network of in-country conservation partners to protect crucial habitats from threats such as agriculture, road building and mining. However, sometimes the areas where our partners are working have already been cleared, and we must act now to restore the forests so that wildlife can return once more.
Some of these locations includes The Reuga Reserve (Brazil), Khe Nuoc Trong (Vietnam), Kites Hill (UK) and many more.
World Land Trust helps save endangered plants and animals by protecting habitat through its worldwide conservation projects. Some of these species are new to science and are unique to the habitats saved by WLT funded land purchase.
These habitats are home to an enormous array of species, with hundreds of species of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates (and in places, fish).
Carbon offsetting is a process whereby a company takes action to prevent the release of emissions elsewhere, or secures the absorption of atmospheric carbon dioxide as part of a wider approach to measure, reduce and then offset emissions through impactful conservation projects.
This enables the regeneration of degraded habitats, which gradually re-absorb atmospheric CO2. In a warmer climate, it is predicted that tropical ecosystems will be able to store less carbon than they do now, so urgent action is required.
