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.
The Living with Wildlife project is a partnership between Send a Cow and Tusk to help protect the people and wildlife of Murchison Falls National Park in Uganda.

Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Northern Kenya maintained a zero rhino poaching rate in 2020 amidst the unprecedented challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic.

We meet Lewa's Head of Anti-Poaching, Edward Ndiritu (pictured below right) to find out more.
