Protecting Wildlife. Supporting Communities. Promoting Education
TUSK TRUST has been supporting wildlife conservation, communities, and environmental education in Africa since 1990. Tusk’s 40 projects, which range across 17 countries, are designed not only to deliver protection for endangered species, but also to help alleviate poverty and promote sustainable development amongst the rural communities who live alongside wildlife. Prince William has been Royal Patron of Tusk since 2005.
As the human population increases, the demand for land often leads to disastrous conflict with wildlife. Tusk’s approach to conservation recognises that the future of Africa’s rich biodiversity is as much dependant on promoting education and sustainable human development. So whilst Tusk directs substantial funds towards the protection of many threatened species such as elephant, rhino, cheetah, gorilla and even turtles, a proportion of the Charity’s work focuses on the need to improve education and schools.
Tusk has also been at the forefront of establishing innovative community driven conservation programmes with its many project partners. The Charity has attracted global support for its integrated approach - promoting sustainable development programmes, which, in turn, create employment, increase security, and alleviate poverty through the stimulation of nature-based enterprises. One such programme has seen over 2 million acres of community land come under a common conservation policy with initiatives that are directly and simultaneously benefiting 70,000 people and a significant wildlife population in northern Kenya.
Tusk strives to provide practical, logistical and financial support to the projects it supports. This includes the purchase of vehicles and operational equipment, as well as the construction of schools, clinics, water projects, roads, buildings, bridges, and airstrips. The Charity, which is registered in the UK and USA has a reputation for being highly effective in delivering donor funds to the field with the maximum possible efficiency.
