A celebration of Africa’s conservation leaders.
The Tusk Conservation Awards, in partnership with Ninety-One, celebrate African-based conservation leaders and wildlife rangers, and their significant impacts in the field.
Their work with wildlife and communities in Africa safeguards the future for us all.
HRH The Duke of Cambridge, Tusk’s Royal Patron says “These awards which mean a great deal to me personally, play a huge part in our mission to preserve Africa’s precious wildlife for its people. It is vital that we recognise the dedication of these unsung heroes and the bravery of rangers risking their lives, day and night, on conservation’s frontline. We all owe them a huge debt of gratitude.”
Now in its eighth year, the 2020 Tusk Awards ceremony will be held virtually on Thursday 3rd December, 2020 at 6pm GPM – register to get the latest news about the event, and receive the ceremony programme, and watch live here .
