Shout about these extraordinary people, and the tireless work they do to protect our most vulnerable animals.
The Tusk Wildlife Ranger Award recognises the dedication and bravery of rangers working to protect Africa’s increasingly endangered wildlife.
This award gives international recognition to the men and women who face danger every day. Rangers often work for little reward, risking and regularly losing their lives to protect the world’s wildlife and its fragile ecosystems.
This is the sixth year of this award and the winner receives a grant of £10,000 and a specially made bronze medal.
This award is generously sponsored by
