The Tusk Trust is a British non-profit organization set up in 1990 to help to protect African wildlife including African elephants.


Tusk Trust was set up by Charles Mayhew, MBE, who is the Chief Executive.[1] Stephen Watson is currently Chairman.

It is a member of the Princes' Charities Forum, an initiative started by Prince William and Prince Harry in 2006 as a way of bringing together their charitable interests to develop synergies between the 20 or so organisations they support.[2] Prince William has been a Royal Patron of the organization since 2005.

Together with Investec Asset Management, it presents the Tusk Conservation Awards every year in London since 2013.[3] On 12 September 2013 Prince William and his wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge attended the 1st annual Tusk Conservation Awards .[4][5]
