Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Northern Kenya maintained a zero rhino poaching rate in 2020 amidst the unprecedented challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic. Tusk was able to support Lewa with Covid relief grants raised through our Crisis Appeal and Wildlife Ranger Challenge - enabling rangers who had been laid off to return back to their vital work. We meet Lewa's Head of Anti-Poaching, Edward Ndiritu (pictured below right) to find out more.
Tusk was integral in testing a prototype design of the new Defender in the field in 2019. Now, this World Wildlife Day, Land Rover revisits the Borana and Lewa Conservancies and the Rangers who patrol their vast landscapes.
It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of Senior Wildlife Warden Solomon Chidunuka of Zambia’s Department of National Parks and Wildlife.
The Times and Sunday Times Christmas Appeal closed on Sunday, having raised a record amount for the three charities supported, including more than £620,000 for Tusk.
This time last year, Tusk launched the Living with Wildlife appeal in partnership with Send a Cow, to raise funds to protect the people and wildlife of Murchison Falls National Park in Uganda. As we reflect on the success of the fundraising appeal, the difference it will make is more important than ever in light of the extra challenges that have emerged over the past year.
South Africa’s Ministry of Forestry, Fisheries and Environmental Affairs has released its 2019-2020 SANParks Annual Report, in which the full impact of rhino poaching in the world-famous Kruger National Park has been fully documented for the first time in some years. The figures report a loss of two-thirds of the park's white rhino population, and one-third of its black rhino population within less than a decade.
Nominations are now open for the 2021 Tusk Conservation Awards. These industry-leading accolades celebrate African conservation leaders and wildlife rangers and showcase their significant impacts in the field.
Thank you to everyone who has generously supported us in what has been an incredibly challenging year. Your contributions have made all the difference in helping our project partners get through the toughest of times.
