The Prince of Wales's Charitable Fund awarded a grant to Tusk to support their work to tackle poaching and the Illegal Wildlife Trade in Sub-Saharan Africa. We funded two projects which focussed on training rangers in proven interception tracking tactics, training park level intelligence staff for their role and improving the co-ordination of information sharing between protected areas.

Place Strategy - Hanley

The Place Strategy was developed on the basis that entrenched social issues need an integrated response. In collaboration with The Prince of Wales’s charities, our work in Burnley, Tottenham, Redcar and Burslem, had a significant impact and a ripple effect on the surrounding areas.
