As patron of World Land Trust, Sir David Attenborough is quotes as saying “The money that is given to the World Land Trust, in my estimation, has more effect on the wild world than almost anything I can think of.”
To date, WLT has helped secure more than 881,000 acres of threatened habitat in 20 countries. Card Connection, though UKG greetings are proud to be playing it part in this vital work, while at the same time demonstrating its ongoing commitment to operating a more environmentally sustainable business.
