Tusk is grateful to Longleat for generously hosting this event

The event is being held as part of the Living with Wildlife appeal, run in partnership between Tusk and Send a Cow to raise funds to lift people out of poverty and protect the wildlife of Uganda’s Murchison Falls National Park. The UK government will match all funds raised on the night of the event – making your support go twice as far. The money raised will help vulnerable people and wildlife living in Uganda as well as supporting other similar work across Africa.
