Founded in 1990, and with HRH Prince William, The Duke of Cambridge as its patron, Tusk Trust works across Africa from Algeria to Zambia, supporting conservation and community projects. These include the Lamu Marine Conservation Trust, dedicated to the protection of the five species of turtle that feed in Kenyan waters (pictured), and the Save the Rhino Trust that works in the northern regions of Namibia to conserve the population of desert rhino in the area.
Scott Dunn’s donation will go towards supporting seven different projects across Africa, including the Mokolodi Nature Reserve and Education Centre in Botswana, the Kafue National Park in Zambia, and the Lekurruki Conservation Trust, the Koiyaki Guiding School, and the Maasailand Preservation Trust, all of which operate in Kenya.
When presenting Scott Dunn’s donation to Tusk, Andrew Dunn commented, “We are delighted to support such a worthy and hardworking trust which enriches communities, promotes education and fights to conserve a wide diversity of wildlife species across Africa. We have been actively supporting such projects for many years now and are consistently overwhelmed by the work accomplished by the Tusk Trust.”
