Since its formation in 1990, Tusk has raised over $25 million for a wide range of projects across Africa which not only work to protect wildlife, particularly endangered species, but also help to alleviate poverty, through sustainable development and education amongst rural communities who live alongside wildlife.
The charity views conservation as a long term investment, relying upon a partnership with key individuals and organizations that have a proven track record in conservation. It is an approach which has allowed Tusk to fully maximize its investment into the field whilst minimizing its core operational and administrative costs. Since inception, Tusk has invested on average between 75-80% of net funds raised into the field.
