THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE WILL ATTEND THE TUSK CONSERVATION AWARDS

London

Thursday 8th November, 2018

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will attend the Tusk Conservation Awards at Banqueting House, London.

His Royal Highness became Royal Patron of Tusk in December 2005. The Duke has actively supported the charity’s work both privately and publicly on many occasions and recently visited Tusk projects in Namibia and Tanzania. (You can learn more about The Duke’s visit to Africa in the latest issue of Royal Life magazine).

For almost thirty years, Tusk has pioneered successful conservation action in Africa by protecting wildlife, empowering communities and advancing the frontline in the fight against the illegal wildlife trade. The annual Tusk Conservation Awards celebrate the achievements of extraordinary people, whose work protecting Africa’s natural heritage might otherwise go unnoticed outside their fields.

Upon arrival at Banqueting House, Their Royal Highnesses will attend a reception to meet the award nominees, Tusk supporters and sponsors. The Duke will present three awards before delivering a short speech.

The Tusk Award for Conservation is given to an emerging leader in conservation in recognition of their contribution to date. The Tusk Wildlife Ranger Award recognises the dedication and bravery of rangers working to protect Africa’s increasingly threatened wildlife. The Prince William Award for Conservation in Africa is a lifetime achievement award which commends outstanding dedication and contribution to conservation.

The Tusk Conservation Awards will be streamed live on Tusk’s Facebook page.
