Tusk’s mission is to amplify the impact of progressive conservation initiatives across Africa.
The charity has earned a reputation for providing a highly efficient solution for funding wildlife conservation programmes. We partner with the most effective local organisations, investing in their in-depth knowledge and expertise. By supporting and nurturing their conservation programmes, we help accelerate growth from an innovative idea to a scalable solution.
We also build long lasting relationships with our donors and seek to invest in long-term solutions because sustainable conservation needs sustained funding.
For 30 years, we have helped pioneer an impressive range of successful conservation initiatives across more than 20 countries, increasing vital protection for over 70 million hectares of land and more than 40 different threatened species. But the threat to Africa’s unique natural heritage remains real and more urgent than ever.
With your generous support, Tusk can, and will, continue to have a positive impact across Africa.
