WHO will be the 2018 Tusk Award for Conservation in Africa winner?
In 2017, Brighton Kumchedwa won the Tusk Award for Conservation in Africa for his incredible work in #Malawi. Brighton says, “during my career I have sadly seen us move from a period of plenty in terms of wildlife to a period of huge losses. We must work every day to ensure that our wildlife and forests are not lost. The wildlife crisis we are facing is terrifying, but we are in a position to make a difference before it is too late. That’s what I remind myself every day.

Thank you, Brighton, for all your work! #ForAllTheyDo @isps_handa @landrover_uk @investec @lilongwewildlife .

The Tusk Conservation Awards gives us an opportunity to shout about extraordinary people, and the tireless work they do to protect our most vulnerable animals.

The Duke of Cambridge, Tusks Royal Patron says “These awards which mean a great deal to me personally, play a huge part in our mission to preserve Africa’s precious wildlife for its people. It is vital that we recognise the dedication of these unsung heroes and the bravery of rangers risking their lives, day and night, on conservation’s frontline. We all owe them a huge debt of gratitude.” The 2018 Tusk Conservation Awards will be held on the 8th of November.
