Who we are


Protecting Wildlife. Supporting Communities. Promoting Education

For thirty years, Tusk has supported forward-thinking and successful conservation work in Africa. Under the patronage of HRH The Duke of Cambridge, Tusk partners with Africa’s leading and emerging conservationists to protect endangered species, reduce human-wildlife conflict, find sustainable solutions to preserve critical habitats and combat the global demand for illegal wildlife products.

Tusk has helped pioneer an impressive range of successful conservation initiatives across more than 20 countries, increasing vital protection for over 10 million acres of land and more than 40 threatened species.  From the savannahs of Kenya to the deserts of Namibia, we’re working towards a future in which people and wildlife can thrive across the African continent.


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. Registered in the UK and USA, the Charity has a reputation for being highly effective in delivering donor funds to the field with the maximum possible efficiency.

The Living with Wildlife Appeal

The Living with Wildlife Appeal is a partnership between Tusk and Send a Cow and is raising funds to lift people out of poverty and protect the wildlife of Uganda’s Murchison Falls National Park. The Appeal will upskill local communities to create livelihood opportunities, as well as funding vital conservation work so that local communities appreciate the wildlife and become guardians of Murchison Falls National Park. 

Give before 14 April 2020 and the UK government will match all public donations to the Living with Wildlife Appeal. Your support will help vulnerable people and wildlife living in Uganda, as well as supporting other similar work across Africa.
