The Tusk Conservation Awards celebrate the extraordinary work of dedicated conservationists from across Africa, whose work and lives might otherwise go unnoticed outside their fields. The 2020 Awards ceremony will be a virtual event.
The 2020 Tusk Conservation Awards will take place on Thursday 3rd December 6pm GMT at….
Register your interest here to receive updates about the event and an exclusive programmed for the evening.
The annual Tusk Conservation Awards were established in 2013 in partnership with Ninety One and in conjunction with HRH The Duke of Cambridge, to celebrate successful conservation that is being undertaken throughout Africa by individuals who are dedicated to their work and cause.
The Awards have become an accolade in the truest sense, and recognize the unsung heroes of conservation, who are nominated by their peers without their prior knowledge, in recognition of their outstanding and inspirational efforts to conserve Africa’s natural heritage.
Now in its eighth year, the 2020 Awards ceremony will for the first time be a purely virtual event, on account of the restrictions imposed by Covid-19.
The event will be a celebration of all that can be achieved against the odds, and we are extremely honored that BBC Presenter Kate Silverton will be our online host for the evening, and Adventurer & TV Personality Bear Grylls will introduce the Tusk Ranger Award. Entertainment for the broadcast will include a performance from best-selling singer-songwriter Jack Savoretti.
We would like to thank Ninety One for their valuable partnership since the inception of the Awards, and co-sponsors Land Rover, the Nick Maughan Foundation, ISPS Handa, Mantis, Patrick Mavros, and Fortemus & Maia Films, Ethiopian Airlines, Shelton Fleming and EJF Philanthropies for their support.
Today, Tusk, a nonprofit advancing conservation across Africa, is announcing a significant increase in the value of the conservation awards thanks to the generous commitment of £1m over 5 years from The Nick Maughan Foundation. This funding will more than double the conservation grants given to the winners and finalists dedicated to safeguarding the continent’s wildlife and habitat.
This year has been exceptionally difficult for the extraordinary men and women living on the frontline of African conservation. Drastic cuts in salaries and resources due to the devastating economic impact of Covid-19 threaten to undo their years of conservation work across Africa.
Announcing the shortlist for the 2020 Tusk Award for Conservation in Africa, Charlie Mayhew, CEO of Tusk said, “We are immensely grateful to Ninety One for their continued partnership and thrilled to announce the invaluable additional support from The Nick Maughan Foundation. As the future of the natural world is brought into even sharper focus, it is fantastic that the recipients of our awards can continue their vital work thanks to this much needed boost to grant funding. I am very pleased today to reveal the three exceptional finalists for this year’s Tusk Award.”
The shortlist for the prestigious Tusk Award for Conservation in Africa in partnership with Land Rover are:
George Owoyesigire (Uganda): Uganda Wildlife Authority – Deputy Director Community Conservation. George has improved relations between local communities and wildlife by promoting benefit sharing; investment in wildlife enterprises, addressing human-wildlife conflict issues and promoting conservation education. He also implemented the bee keeping project, an initiative that uses bees as a deterrent against elephant crop raiding.
Ian Stevenson (Zambia): Conservation Lower Zambezi (CLZ). Ian is CEO at CLZ, combatting issues such as poaching, human wildlife conflict and illegal activity. He made CLZ the multi-faceted and holistic organization it is today, paving the way in law enforcement, environmental education and community engagement.
John Kamanga (Kenya): South Rift Association of Land Owners (SORALO) – Executive Director. John has dedicated his career to developing a vision for the co-existence of pastoralists and wildlife. In Kenya, where 68% of wildlife resides on community land, supporting the ability of people and wildlife to co-exist is
imperative.#NotOnTheirWatch #ForAllTheyDo #TuskAwards
