The Tusk Conservation Awards, in partnership with Investec Asset Management, give us a chance to celebrate extraordinary people, whose work and lives might otherwise go unnoticed outside their fields. Their work with wildlife and communities in Africa safeguards the future for us all.
This year we celebrated them at the V&A Museum, in London, on 30th November. HRH the Duke of Cambridge presented the Prince William Award, and Sir David Attenborough presented the Tusk Conservation and Wildlife Ranger awards. (Sir David also received a special award from The Duke, for a lifetime of service to conservation.) Our Tusk Patron Kate Silverton hosted the ceremony with her usual grace and charm.
A huge thank you to everyone who played a part in making these wonderful awards a reality, especially our team and our sponsors. And heartfelt congratulations to all our finalists and winners.

Without our partners, there would be no awards. Each year, they give of their time and resources to make sure that we can continue to recognise, inspire and encourage conservationists in Africa, for all the work that they do. They also go the extra mile to make sure that our finalists and winners have the once in a lifetime experience they deserve. Please take the time to visit our sponsor pages and find out how they contribute to making each year bigger and better.
Our judging panel features some of the leading conservation figures working in Africa today. They are all experts in their fields, with a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities that our unique struggle entails.
