10 YEARS OF CONSERVATION

For the last decade, the prestigious Tusk Conservation Awards, in partnership with Ninety One, have raised the profile of conservation leaders across Africa.

From Kenya to South Africa, Nigeria to Mozambique, we are proud to have supported the development of a pan-African conservation community helping people and wildlife to thrive together.

The awards’ 10th year comes at a critical time for conservation. The future of Africa’s wildlife and protected spaces have taken centre stage in biodiversity conversations taking place around the world.

Our winners and finalists have the influence, passion and expertise to implement the plans forged on the global stage. The awards celebrate these individuals and their potential to tackle the greatest threats to the continent’s biodiversity.

The threat to Africa’s wildlife and wider biodiversity remains real and urgent. With the devastating economic impact of COVID-19 still being felt across Africa, our finalists represent a beacon of hope as the continent’s emerging leaders in conservation, working tirelessly on the front line to protect Africa’s extraordinary natural heritage.
