Chessington's Conservation Fund has supported the WLT for the last eight years, saving an area of threatened rainforest in Ecuador double the size of the Resort and protecting it annually against poaching, illegal logging, mining and encroaching from farming, by funding ‘Keepers of the Wild’ (Rangers), to safeguard the area.
