Tusk is delighted to announce that our annual Tusk Conservation Lecture will take place at the Royal Geographic Society on Thursday 1st October 2020. This will be an extra special evening to celebrate Tusk’s 30th anniversary, with three inspirational speakers sharing stories about their respective roles in preserving African conservation and their future objectives moving forward.
Olivier Nsengimana, a Tusk Awards finalist, will be one of the three key speakers on the night, highlighting his work in Rwanda and showing you how the conservation efforts in his country have developed over the years.
We will also be welcoming Rachel McRobb to the stage, another Tusk Awards finalist who formed Conservation South Luangwa, the area’s largest non-profit anti-poaching and community conservation organisation. Rachel has worked tirelessly to build a strong Zambian team and make CSL a key conservation organization.
Our third speaker is Tom Lalampaa, who won a Tusk Award for his outstanding work brokering peace through conservation amongst feuding tribal groups in northern Kenya. Lalampaa has been key to creating a conservation area of 3 million acres under the Northern Rangelands Trust, benefiting over 150,000 people.
Three inspirational people from three countries across Africa, coming together for one night only. Please keep an eye open for when tickets become available.
Tusk would like to thank Artemis Investment Management LLP for its generous sponsorship of this event.
