The Tusk Trust Mission

“I co-founded Tusk in 1990 at the height of the last poaching crisis in Africa when 100,000 elephants were being slaughtered every year for ivory. I am immensely proud of what the charity has achieved since its humble beginnings, but we cannot afford to be complacent as Africa’s wildlife still faces many challenges.

“The future for Tusk is about ensuring the long-term survival of the continent’s incredible wildlife and using conservation to support the livelihoods of the people of Africa. We simply cannot be the generation that lets Africa’s unique wildlife disappear on our watch and we are very grateful to our generous supporters for enabling us to achieve our goals.”
