Protecting Wildlife, Supporting Communities, Promoting Education

www.tusk.org Tax ID 43-1634280


Tusk is a dynamic and pioneering organization with over 28 years of experience initiating and funding conservation, community development and environmental education programs across Africa. Since its formation in 1990, Tusk has invested over US$ 50 million into a wide range of projects across the continent. 


We empower local communities and connect global partners to protect Africa’s unique wildlife and natural habitats.


We partner with Africa’s leading and emerging conservationists to protect endangered species, reduce human-wildlife conflict, find sustainable solutions to preserve critical habitats and combat the global demand for illegal wildlife products.


Our Approach


Community-based conservation is at the heart of Tusk’s philosophy. We believe that the only way to affect lasting change in Africa is to involve local people in the solutions.


Our approach is a partnership model, working with grassroots organizations who are experts in their field and are implementing some of the best conservation initiatives in Africa. We aim to identify, support and nurture projects to accelerate their growth from an innovative idea to a scalable solution. We invest in long-term initiatives because we believe that sustainable conservation needs sustained funding. 


By supporting Tusk, you will become part of a vibrant network of donors helping the charity to preserve Africa’s natural heritage.  As such we have established the Friends of Tusk fund administered by CAF America for US supporters wishing to donate in the most tax efficient way.


We thank you for your generous support of our vital work.
