Catherine Zeta-Jones turns wild life protector

London: Hollywood actress Catherine Zeta-Jones is backing a USD 1.6 million campaign to protect a farm, which is home to threatened wildlife species, in her native Wales.

The 41-year-old star wants the officials at Britain`s National Trust to acquire the 600-acre property in Snowdonia so they can preserve the site, reported Contactmusic.

"The National Trust plays a key role in protecting and managing the Welsh countryside. The beauty and landscape of Snowdonia is truly unique and we have a once in a lifetime opportunity to protect Llyndy Isaf in this stunning part of Wales for future generations," said the Oscar winning actress.

"If we don`t act now the threat of commercial development could spoil the tranquility of this special part of Snowdonia," added Zeta-Jones.

Actor Matthew Rhys has also appealed for help in raising funds to buy the farm, while USD 800,000 has already been donated to the cause.
