As part we of our ongoing commitment to Tusk we have created a new collection of sterling silver animals.
We have made them in miniature and medium sizes and they look great as a collection.
20% from the sale of each piece will be donated to Tusk to help protect these endangered species.
Luangwa miniature and medium Lion for Tusk
Lions across the world are under threat from poaching. We have named our lion after South Luangwa in Zambia which faces widespread poaching of big game, funding from Tusk helps Conservation South Luangwa to increase its anti-poaching and animal trafficking prevention. Support is needed to continue this vital work and to protect this wildlife rich wilderness.

Kunene miniature and medium Rhino for Tusk
Rhinos across the world are under threat from poaching, Tusk initiatives are working hard to create secure areas for these amazing animals to live. We have named our rhino after the Kunene area in Namibia which is home to a long running black rhino project. This critical black rhino population which has been steadily recovering since the 1980s, is now facing a renewed threat from poaching. Tusk helps the Save the Rhino Trust with their anti-poaching work to keep these precious animals safe.

Chyulu miniature and medium elephant for Tusk
Elephants across the world are under threat from poaching. We have named our elephant after the Chyulu Hills in Kenya where the largest population of elephants in East Africa is under constant threat of ivory poaching. Tusk helps the Big Life Foundation to conduct monitoring and anti-poaching which has led to a dramatic decline in in poaching since 2010. More support is needed for this crucial project to reach all areas of the huge habitat it is protecting.

Gourma miniature elephant for Tusk
Elephants across the world are under threat from poaching. We have named this elephant Gourma after an area in Mali where a unique population of 550 sub-desert elephants live. In 2017 it was estimated that if poaching was not reduced the entire population would be wiped out by 2021. Tusk supports the Mali Elephant Project which brings the community together and has trained and mobilised an anti-poaching unit to protect the migration route of these animals. This work must continue in order to keep this fragile elephant population safe.
