Since its formation in 1990, Tusk has earned a reputation for being non-bureaucratic as well for maximising donor funds reaching the field (on average 80% of net funds). The charity has supported more than 100 projects and invested over $25 million over the past 21 years and is continually sighted as one of the leading organisations operating in Africa.
Tusk’s current portfolio of 40 projects spread across 17 African countries is designed not only to protect wildlife, particularly endangered species, but also to help alleviate poverty and encourage sustainable development and education amongst many poor rural communities who live alongside wildlife. Conservation of wildlife remains one of Tusk's key objectives, with substantial funding being applied towards the protection of many threatened species such as elephant, rhino, cheetah and too many others.
