Help us to buy and protect for eternity a mountain range!
Kendal Mountain Festival and The Lake District Foundation are excited to announce an innovative partnership to raise funds for conservation.
Festival goers are able to donate to a new fund hosted by the Foundation, supporting the joint mission to look after our natural world and inspire others to share the many benefits of life outdoors.
Our aim is to raise £24,100 to purchase and protect 241 acres of land in the Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve in the Hoya Verde region of Mexico. A beautiful and biodiverse area, much of which is under private ownership and consequently at threat from cattle ranching, slash and burn forest clearance, illegal hunting, timber extraction, mining and urban sprawl.
The funds are raised as part of the World land Trust's, 'Buy an Acre' project where funds are raised to 'buy' the land, then ownership is passed over to local conservational groups.Donations will be split between World Land Trust, local community conservation projects and projects involving young people.
Donations will be split between the 3 causes, World Mountain Trust, Lake District conservation and young people projects, administered by the LDF
