Tusk Conservation Awards 2019

Dear Andrew,

We would like to thank you very much indeed for joining us last week at the Tusk Conservation Awards in partnership with Investec Asset Management. We do hope you enjoyed the evening.

We were delighted by the success of the event, especially as it was the first time we have held the ceremony with such a theatre-style format. Seeing the finalists’ work on the big screen helped showcase the phenomenal work that they do, which provides very real hope for the future of Africa’s natural heritage. If you would like to view their films again they are all available on Tusk’s Youtube channel, while full coverage of the ceremony is still available on our Facebook page.

The event was made possible through the generous support of Investec Asset Management, and the co-sponsors Land Rover, ISPS Handa, The Mantis Group, Moët & Chandon and Fortemus and Maia Films. The event and the work of the finalists was also kindly supported by Stuart and Teresa Graham, Paul Tudor Jones, EJF Philanthropies and John Smith.

Nevertheless, as Prince William said in his speech, “We have to move faster and more effectively to find ways to balance our demands on this planet with the nature we share it with”. As well as investing in the finalists’ work, Tusk continues to partner with the most effective local organisations, investing in their in-depth knowledge and expertise to tackle the greatest threats facing Africa’s wildlife. If you didn’t get the chance to make a donation last week, or would even like to make a further contribution, you can still do so at www.tusk.org/tuskawards-donate/.

In the meantime, we have an exciting calendar of events for the year ahead, especially as we will be celebrating Tusk’s 30th Anniversary, and we hope you will be able to join us again. Further details can be found on our website, with alerts to follow through our regular e-newsletters. If you don’t already receieve these you can subscribe at any time at www.tusk.org/newsletter-sign-up/.
