Since its founding in 1990, Tusk has taken an integrated approach to conservation, working hand in hand with local communities and combining the protection of wildlife with the management and sustainable use of natural resources.
In doing this, Tusk’s projects provide protection for more than 40 different threatened species and many more that share the same landscapes. As well as protecting African elephant, rhino and lion, Tusk’s projects are playing a critical role in the survival of cheetah, chimpanzee, eastern lowland and Cross River gorilla, painted dog, Grevy’s zebra, giant sable, Cape vulture, Alaotran gentle lemur, hawksbill turtle, and many more.
Tusk is also on the frontline of efforts to tackle poaching and illegal wildlife trade, and supports rangers in ten different countries.
