THE DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE WILL CELEBRATE LEADING CONSERVATIONISTS AT THE TUSK AWARDS
Monday, 22nd November 2021
The Duke of Cambridge will celebrate Africa’s leading wildlife protectors and present the winners of the annual Tusk Conservation Awards at a ceremony to be held later this month.
Launched with Prince William in 2013, the awards celebrate the work of leading conservationists in Africa. The ceremony will return this year as a face-to-face event at the BFI Southbank in London after last year’s ceremony had to be held virtually. It will be hosted by Kate Silverton.
During the ceremony, the Duke will present each of the winners with their awards, before making a short speech. Following the awards presentation, the Duke will attend a reception with key members and supporters of Tusk Trust, as well as the winners of this years’ awards to hear more about their vital work on the frontline of conservation efforts in Africa.
As Royal Patron of Tusk Trust, Prince William has long been a supporter of the charity’s efforts and has taken part in their annual awards several times. For last year’s virtual ceremony, he recorded a video message congratulating the winners.
