Grant Macdonald and Tusk

Introducing 'Ruaha'

Driven by the fact that lions may now number as few as twenty thousand in the wild, the team of designers and craftsmen at Grant Macdonald wanted to create a unique piece to raise awareness and funds to help to preserve this majestic animal.

The sale of this Sterling silver Lion will provide a significant contribution to further the work of Tusk.

This beautifully handcrafted lion is the work of many talented craftspeople, the production has involved many processes, from the newest technology to ancient techniques, finished with the hallmark of the London Assay Office. The lion will be the first part of an ongoing initiative with Tusk which will grow to include other endangered species.

Charity These are some examples of how the sale of ‘Ruaha’ could help lion conservation: • Salaries for 3 core staff members for 1 year Staff members conduct research, construct shelters to protect livestock at night, manage community benefits and arrange educational visits to the park. These visits increase awareness about the Park’s role and value to the local area. • Radio - satellite collars for monitoring and protecting lion in the wild. These help to develop a better understanding of the lions ranging patterns and where the priority areas for habitat protection are. • 4 – 6 Simba scholarships These fully funded scholarships for all four years of secondary education are a valuable way to provide extra community support showing that conservation can improve local lives and futures.
