Tusk is a dynamic and pioneering organisation with 25 years of experience initiating and funding conservation, community development and environmental education programmes across Africa.
Since its formation in 1990, Tusk has invested more than £25 ($40) million into a wide range of projects across the continent.
Tusk currently supports more than 60 field projects in 19 African countries that not only work to protect wildlife, but also help to alleviate poverty through sustainable development and education amongst rural communities living alongside the wildlife. Tusk's aim is to forge an inextricable link between the preservation of Africa's natural heritage and the future of its land, culture and people.
Protection of wildlife remains a key objective with substantial funding being applied towards threatened species such as elephant, rhino, lion, cheetah, gorilla, African wild dog and giant sable.
By partnering with local organisations, Tusk is combining conservation, education and community programmes to make positive change - one step at a time.
