Each year we are proud to work with Tusk Trust on a pro-bono basis to produce a series of films featuring award nominees for the Tusk Conservation Awards.
The film productions see our film crews travel around the world and spending time with the conservationists, getting their own personal stories, the journeys they’ve been through and the amazing work they do to protect our wildlife and communities.
Three finalists have been chosen for this year, from Malawi, Kenya and Nigeria, with a further two who are chosen for the Wildlife Ranger Award. We can’t wait to get out to Africa and get filming with them!
Watch our beautiful films with last years nominees, which are shown at the awards ceremony, below:
Brighton Kumchedwa has dedicated his life to conserving the wildlife of Malawi, Nachamada Geoffrey leads a team of conservationists in Nigeria’s Yankari Game Reserve and Serah Munguit who works with communities in Kenya’s Tana River Delta, helping to protect land.
The Wildlife Ranger Awards finalists are Solomon Chidunuka, a Senior Wildlife Warden for the Department of National Parks and Wildlife, working with black rhinos in Zambia and Lucky Ndlovu based in Kruger National Park, leading a team involved in the arrests of 66 poachers.
The Duke of Cambridge, Tusk Royal Patron said: “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 2017 Tusk Awards for Conservation in Africa will be presented at a ceremony in Cape Town on 4 October.
