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.
Tusk partners with Africa’s leading and emerging conservationists to protect endangered species, reduce human-wildlife conflict, find sustainable solutions to preserve critical habitats and combat the global demand for illegal wildlife products.
Through community support and education, we are shaping a tomorrow where the people of Africa can reconnect with nature, understand its inherent value and protect it for future generations.

In a guest blog, Tusk Trustee Dr Susan Canney explores the role of wild animals in the climate debate. Her call for world leaders to recognise that humanity and nature are one community with a shared future came as world leaders at COP26 committed to end deforestation by 2030.
The annual Tusk Conservation Awards, in partnership with Ninety One, celebrate the achievements of extraordinary people whose work protecting Africa’s irreplaceable natural heritage might otherwise go unnoticed.
For the 2018 Tusk Conservation Lecture, Ted Schmitt of Vulcan Inc. took us on an expedition through his innovative work combatting some of the planet's greatest conservation challenges with emerging technology solutions.
