Founded in 1990, Tusk Trust is a dynamic and pioneering organisation that supports the people and wildlife of Africa. The charity has built a reputation for investing in an impressive range of projects that use conservation as a tool to alleviate poverty, improve education and reduce conflict, while also protecting areas rich in biodiversity. Whether tackling the rampant illegal wildlife trade, habitat loss or human-wildlife conflict, Tusk’s success is rooted in the understanding that the interests of both people and wildlife are inextricably inter-twined, and that both must be served if success is to last.
