After just six months, members of BIAZA have met their target to raise £10,000 to help purchase and protect threatened wildlife habitat in Mexico.

To mark World Ranger Day on 31 July, BIAZA pledged to raise another £10,000 by the end of the year, which will secure a total of 200 acres of forest.

BIAZA’s Buy an Acre campaign was launched in February in partnership with World Land Trust (WLT) to help protect habitat and species in Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve in Central Mexico.

Money raised will be used by WLT’s partner in Mexico, Grupo Ecológico Sierra Gorda (GESG), to fund the purchase of privately owned land within this wonderfully ecologically diverse biosphere reserve.

Roberto Pedraza is GESG’s Technical Officer. He said: "On behalf of the wildlife of Sierra Gorda, I would like to thank BIAZA, its members and the public that supports their Buy an Acre campaign. Their solidarity and support are very much appreciated.”

BIAZA Programmes and Policy Coordinator, Nicky Needham, said: “This is a fantastic result in just six months and we are urging our members to keep up their efforts to raise another £10,000 by the end of 2014. By pulling together to save this precious habitat, BIAZA members are achieving a really significant conservation goal and we are looking forward to raising even more funds for this exciting project.”

If you would like to find out more about this worthwhile project, please contact Nic at the Trust.
