Conservation is a keystone to all the experiences we design at Pelorus. When working in the most remote and untouched regions on Earth, from coral reefs in Indonesia to rainforests in Guyana, it is vital that clients appreciate the environment and understand its fragility. We are privileged to be able to operate in these stunning and biologically diverse habitats, and this should never be taken for granted.
One of our official partners is World Land Trust, a conservation charity that aims to protect and sustainably manage natural ecosystems around the world by providing finance and technical support to local NGOs.
Since its launch in 1989, World Land Trust and its overseas project partners have been instrumental in the purchase and protection of more than 600,000 acres of tropical forest and other threatened habitats, and together ensure that more than four million acres of land is managed under active protection worldwide.
The money donated to the World Land Trust through Pelorus goes towards their Buy an Acre scheme, an initiative that aims to protect the world’s most valuable land one acre at a time. We sat down with Richard Cuthbert, the Director of Conservation, to shed some light on this scheme and the positive impacts it is having.
