Tusk is a dynamic charity that has become a highly effective and efficient force in African wildlife conservation. Our mission is to advance innovation in conservation. We empower local communities and connect global partners to protect Africa’s unique wildlife and natural habitats.

We partner with leading and emerging conservationists to protect endangered species, reduce human-wildlife conflict, find sustainable solutions to preserve critical habitats and to combat the global demand for illegal wildlife products.

Under the patronage of HRH The Duke of Cambridge, Tusk also works to promote education and use community based conservation initiatives to tackle the causes of poverty across Africa.

Since 1990 we have built a reputation for identifying and investing in some of Africa’s most successful conservation initiatives – affording greater protection for 10 million acres of land and 43 different threatened species. As well as protecting African elephant, rhino and lion, Tusk’s projects are playing a critical role in the survival of cheetah, chimpanzee, eastern lowland and Cross River gorilla, painted dog, Grevy’s zebra, giant sable, Cape vulture, Alaotran gentle lemur, hawksbill turtle, and many more.

Sadly some of the challenges remain as great today as they were over 26 years ago. The poaching crisis often hits the headlines, and Tusk is once again at the forefront of efforts to tackle the illegal wildlife trade. We support the anti-poaching patrols of 450 game guards across 30 community-led initiatives from Mali to Zimbabwe, successfully overcoming the poaching threat in many of these areas. We also back international initiatives to secure greater government-led action on tackling the illegal wildlife trade, and to reduce demand for elephant ivory and rhino horn in the consumer countries.

Meanwhile, the rapid rate of human population growth is causing greater consumption of natural resources, further loss of habitat, and increased human-wildlife conflict. Tackling these challenges also remain at the heart of Tusk’s work.

Tusk’s experience and success in linking wildlife conservation with sustainable rural development and education makes us well placed to respond efficiently to these rising challenges.

Where Tusk has invested, we continue to witness very significant progress that provides real hope for the future. With further support, Tusk can and will continue to make a lasting difference in Africa.

Our vision is an Africa in which people and wildlife thrive alongside one another.
