Get Away While Giving Back

TUSK USA
ROYAL COUPLE LAUNCH PATRONS CIRCLE EVENT ON U.S. TOUR

Uncharted clients have been incredible donors over the past 8 years as TUSK has gained recognition and momentum in the United States. This past July our fundraising efforts were given a tremendous boost with the arrival of the young British Royals on their first U.S. trip together. On the final morning of their Royal tour, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge joined the board of TUSK USA and attended a private reception to launch the charity’s U.S. Patrons' Circle at the home of Hollywood producer and philanthropist Steve Tisch.  The event was sponsored by Land Rover and Dom Perignon.

Conservation
Uncharted Outposts is founded on its deep love of the wilderness and a passion for sharing it with others. We believe in empowering local people and supporting and partnering with extraordinary community-owned lodges and wildlife conservation projects.

Today, wildlife and biodiversity conservation throughout the world faces many obstacles. Challenges include wildlife crime, climate change, habitat degradation and loss, forest depletion, human wildlife conflict brought on by population growth and changing land use habits of communities that co-exist with wildlife. In 2004, Sandy and Chip Cunningham started Tusk USA (www.tusk.org) the American arm of the conservation organization Tusk Trust (UK).  20 years ago Africa was in the midst of a poaching crisis. Black rhino were on the brink of extinction (just 2,000 remained) and the African elephant population was being slaughtered at a rate of 100,000 each year, just for their ivory. Drastic times required urgent action.

Tusk Trust was established by Charlie Mayhew in the UK in response to an urgent need to halt the decline in Africa’s natural heritage and find a way to combine the interests of people and wildlife alike. Uncharted Outposts goal in collaboration with the properties and people we work with is to support the conservation, protection and sustainable management of wildlife resources.

Since its formation in 1990 Tusk has raised over $25 million for a wide range of projects across Africa which not only work to protect wildlife, particularly endangered species, but also help to alleviate poverty, through sustainable development and education amongst rural communities who live alongside wildlife. We’re proud of playing a vital and dynamic role in sustainable nature-based tourism.  The people we work with around the world embody the kind of partnerships whose commitment to conservation will inspire you.
