About Us

Tusk’s mission is to accelerate the impact of African-driven conservation.

About Us

For over thirty years, Tusk has supported forward-thinking and successful conservation intervention in Africa. From the plains of the Serengeti to the rainforests of the Congo Basin, we’re working towards a future in which people and wildlife can both thrive across the African continent.

Poaching, habitat loss and human-wildlife conflict are having a devastating impact on Africa’s wildlife. We believe local people and organisations are best positioned to address these threats, but are often under-resourced and lack the recognition they deserve. By partnering with leading and emerging conservationists across Africa, Tusk secures donor funding to invest in the best grassroots conservation initiatives – helping to increase their profile and maximise their impact.  

We work with successful local organisations, encouraging and enabling local African leadership, and supporting and nurturing their conservation programmes to accelerate growth from an innovative idea to a scalable solution. 

We believe strategic conservation can empower local communities and improve livelihoods. We support and promote effective environmental education designed to provide a more sustainable future for the next generation.  

It’s an approach that works. Through our partnerships, we continue to witness very significant progress, providing greater protection for over 70 million hectares of land and more than 40 different threatened species, while benefitting more than 7,500,000 people.

At Tusk we build long lasting relationships with our donors and seek to invest in long-term solutions because sustainable conservation needs sustained funding. 

With your generous support, Tusk can, and will, continue to have a positive impact in Africa.
