Tusk Conservation Awards

The 2023 Tusk Conservation Awards, in partnership with Ninety One, was held on Monday 27th November at London’s iconic Savoy, recognising extraordinary conservation leaders and their significant impacts on wildlife and communities across Africa.

The respected wild animal biologist and natural history broadcaster Liz Bonnin, hosted of the prestigious Tusk Conservation Awards ceremony.

The annual Tusk Conservation Awards were established in 2013 in partnership with Ninety One and in conjunction with HRH The Prince of Wales, to celebrate the achievements of extraordinary people whose work protecting Africa’s irreplaceable natural heritage might otherwise go unnoticed. All finalists not only receive grants to support their work, but also the international recognition they have earned, which further contributes to the development of their projects. The three Awards are as follows:

The Prince William Award for Conservation in Africa, supported by Ninety One, is a lifetime achievement award, given to a distinguished individual for their outstanding dedication and exceptional contribution to conservation in Africa over many years. 

The Tusk Award for Conservation in Africa, supported by Defender, recognises an emerging leader in conservation whose work has already demonstrated an exceptional commitment and has made a significant impact to date. 

The Tusk Wildlife Ranger Award, supported by the Nick Maughan Foundation, recognises the dedication and bravery of rangers working to protect Africa’s increasingly endangered wildlife.

These awards which mean a great deal to me personally, play a huge part in our mission to preserve Africa’s precious wildlife for its people. It is vital that we recognise the dedication of these unsung heroes and the bravery of rangers risking their lives, day and night, on conservation’s frontline. We all owe them a huge debt of gratitude.
