Recovery Appeal

Help us provide hope and recovery to wildlife and communities across Africa.

The conservation projects we support provide not just protection for Africa’s wildlife, but livelihoods and wellbeing for thousands of people across the continent. Sadly, the impact of Covid could undo years of progress. The collapse in tourism and other revenue has devastated rural livelihoods and conservation efforts, leading to increased poaching and habitat loss.

As we tentatively begin to emerge from the most challenging year on record for conservation, our partners face a long and difficult recovery, with little chance of local economies or tourism recovering for a long time. 2021 presents a critical year for climate and biodiversity on our planet. And with it comes a sense of hope that we can move forward into a future where wildlife and the people who safeguard it are valued and celebrated.

Please help us build a better future for Africa’s people and wildlife by donating what you can.

The impact of Covid on local people has been utterly devastating. And without the 20% revenue sharing we would normally be providing to the communities [from tourist fees to the National Park], they have had absolutely nothing. With floods, locusts and other severe problems, all jobs and lodges basically going, the supply chains gone, any economic regional development gone, they are very vulnerable. Unfortunately poaching remains very high. People are still hungry. And the usual illegal networks of crime syndicates, poaching groups and the demand for meat is ever there. The pressure on us is huge and so we have the rangers out everywhere in the park non-stop.

A year ago, Tusk launched its Crisis Appeal in response to the immediate impact that the Covid-19 pandemic was having on wildlife conservation initiatives across Africa. These challenges, and new ones that are still arising, continue to significantly affect our project partners and the communities they support.
