AfriCat Foundation

Tusk Trust
Twenty-five years ago Africa was in the midst of a poaching crisis. Black rhino were on the brink of extinction (just 2,000 remained) and the African elephant population was being slaughtered at a rate of 100,000 each year, just for their ivory. Drastic times required urgent action. Tusk was established at this time in response to an urgent need to halt the decline in Africa’s natural heritage and find a way to combine the interests of people and wildlife alike.

AfriCat was founded in 1991 on OKONJIMA Farm In Central Namibia (though officially registered as a non-profit organisation in 1993) whose mission was to contribute to the long term conservation of Namibia’s large carnivores.

AfriCat was created as a result of information gained on OKONJIMA when it was still a cattle farm losing calves to leopards and the desire and urgent need of sharing this information with fellow farmers.

The consequent contact with numerous farmers and AfriCat’s exposure led to the rescue of many trapped large carnivores. Since 1993 over 1080 of these predators were rescued. Over 85% were released back into the wild.

THE AFRICAT FOUNDATION IS COMMITTED TO THE LONG-TERM CONSERVATION OF NAMIBIA’S LARGE CARNIVORES! 

OUR MISSION IS TO MAKE A SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTION TO CONSERVATION THROUGH EDUCATION.

WE WILL CONTINUE TO STRIVE TOWARDS ENSURING THE LONG TERM SURVIVAL OF NAMIBIA’S PREDATORS IN THEIR NATURAL HABITAT.

TUSK UK & TUSK USA: AfriCat is able to channel its fund-raising efforts through The Tusk Trust's support structure and administrative infrastructure – further, the Foundation benefits from Tusk Trust's high profile and its status as a celebrated and respected conservation organisation.
