Living With Wildlife Appeal Exceeds Target

A very big THANK YOU to everybody who supported the Living with Wildlife appeal, which in partnership with Send a Cow has been raising money to protect the people and wildlife of Murchison Falls National Park in Uganda. The appeal came to an end last week and we're delighted that it smashed its fundraising target.

Through a partnership between Tusk and Send a Cow, the Living with Wildlife Appeal has successfully raised more than its target of £760,000 to upskill local communities and create new livelihood opportunities which can lift people out of poverty and protect wildlife. The funds raised will also support vital conservation work so that local communities appreciate the wildlife and become guardians of Murchison Falls National Park.

The UK government will match all public donations that were given between 15 January and 14 April 2020. Donations received to the appeal will help vulnerable people and wildlife living in Uganda, as well as supporting other similar work across Africa.

We are incredibly grateful to everybody who donated to the appeal, and the UK government for its support. We’d also like to add a special note of thanks to Levison Wood, Ash Bhardwaj, Simon King, Deborah Meaden, Africa Exclusive, Longleat and everyone at Send a Cow for all their amazing contributions to the great success of the appeal.

Levison Wood Captivates Audience

In February 2020, Tusk Ambassador Levison Wood enthralled a packed audience at London’s Emmanuel Centre, as he previewed his upcoming series “Walking With Elephants” and his book “The Last Giants”. The event was generously sponsored by Forevermark, and raised significant funds for the Living with Wildlife appeal.
