Tusk was established in response to an urgent need to halt the decline in Africa’s natural heritage and find a way to combine the interests of people and wildlife alike.

Since its formation in 1990 Tusk has raised over £12 million for a wide range of projects across 17 Africa countries, which not only work to protect wildlife, particularly endangered species, but also help to alleviate poverty, through sustainable development and education amongst rural communities who live alongside wildlife.

The charity views conservation as a long term investment, relying upon a partnership with key individuals and organisations that have a proven track record in conservation. It is an approach, which has allowed Tusk to fully maximize its investment into the field whilst minimizing its core operational and administrative costs. Since its formation, for every £1 donated, Tusk has been able, on average, to commit 85p towards the projects in the field.

Through the support of Tusk and its partner organisations across Africa greater protection has been afforded to some 36 endangered species, incluging the African wild dog, over a combined land mass equivalent to 10 times the size of Belgium.
