2021  Tusk Award nominations open at the end of the year. #ForAllTheyDo

Do you know someone who deserves recognition for the amazing conservation work they do in Africa?

Ask yourself……
Have the lives of the people and wildlife of Africa been improved through their leadership?
Have they had a significant impact on wildlife population numbers?
Do they provide mentorship?
Have their ideas been replicated across the continent, or should they be?
If the answer is yes to any of these then they need to be recognised!
The judges assess the nominee’s outstanding contribution towards any, or all, of the following areas: wildlife and habitat conservation, development and delivery of environmental education, and sustainable community development programmes designed to enhance conservation.
