Tusk Ambassador Bear Grylls has a message for you. 


Your generosity has helped Tusk send an unprecedented £8 million to our partners across Africa …

  • To protect over 40 threatened species, many of which are flagship species, promoted by Tusk to help secure the landscapes in which they are found. 
  • To empower our partner projects to provide vital protection for more than 10 million acres of land.
  • To expand our pioneering Pan African Conservation Education (PACE) programme to reach over 500,000 schoolchildren in 33 different countries
  • To support innovative community based solutions across the continent, ensuring local expertise is harnessed and that the tangible benefits of wildlife conservation reach people living with wildlife.

We’re supporting over 60 projects delivering impactful conservation across the continent.
