Species at Risk

Tusk’s projects protect more than 40 threatened species and their habitat ...

As well as protecting African ElephantRhino and Lion, Tusk’s projects are playing a critical role in the survival of CheetahChimpanzee, Eastern Lowland and Mountain Gorillas, Painted DogGrevy’s Zebra, Giant Sable, Cape Vulture, Crowned SifakaHawksbill Turtle, and many more.

We provide greater protection for more than 40 threatened species, many of which are flagship species that we promote to help secure the landscapes in which they are found. In doing so we also protect other wildlife as an important asset for local communities who could continue to benefit from their presence for future generations.

Every single black rhino that we lose is a big deal when there are just under 5,000 left in the world!

My time will come to die, but people should understand that at least I have preserved these animals. I have conserved these animals for the future generations.
