Henry Cavill attended The World Land Trust screening of 'The Orchids of Banos' supported by Alfred Dunhill held at Bourdon House in London on September 22, 2015.

Henry was looking sharp in Alfred Dunhill suit as he attended the premiere of a new short film on Tuesday, September 22.

The event, on the last night of London Fashion Week, was to mark the premiere of a new film by the World Land Trust about the plight to save micro orchids, some of the smallest and rare planet species on Earth.

Sir David Attenborough, who is patron of the World Land Trust, an international conservation charity, which protects the world’s most biologically important and threatened habitats, introduced the film to the select crowd at the private event, which was hosted by Dunhill's CEO Fabrizio Cardinali.

The six-minute long film Orchids of Baños, which will be screened on Dunhill.com, shows the world of the Trust and their Ecuador conservation partner Fundación EcoMinga. The film follows Ecominga botanist Lou Jost's discovery of 10 new orchid species in the Andean cloud forests of central Ecuador.

Guests at the party were given the chance to acquire naming rights to the 10 new discoveires, with funds going to fund conservation of the orchid habitat in Ecuador.

Sir David Attenborough enthused: "The natural world today, in spite of all of the disasters and catastrophes that afflict it, is still full of great wonders. World Land Trust aims to find those wonders and help the local people own the land in which those wonders are found."
