Destruction of environments like tropical forest is the leading cause of biodiversity loss worldwide. The World Land Trust (WLT) works with local partners to purchase and safeguard these key habitats, which perform vital services to the ecosystem. One of the most important for a stable climate is carbon storage and sequestration. Others include water purification and storage, local weather regulation and shelter for pollinating insects.
