Tom Lalampaa was presented with the Tusk Award for his outstanding work brokering peace through conservation amongst feuding tribal groups in northern Kenya. Lalampaa has been key to creating a conservation area of 3 million acres under the Northern Rangelands Trust, benefiting over 150,000 people. NRT is recognized as the leading model for community conservation in Kenya – and increasingly across Africa – with a proven impact on peace, livelihoods and conservation. The Tusk Award was sponsored by Land Rover.
