The Tusk Conservation Awards 2013

The Tusk Conservation Awards, developed by Tusk Trust in partnership with Investec Asset Management, aim to recognise and celebrate outstanding achievement in the field of African conservation.

We are honoured that Clive Stockil, long time champion of wildlife and communities in the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier  Conservation Area of Zimbabwe, South Africa and Mozambique, including Gonarezhou National Park and the Save Valley Conservancy,  is a shortlisted nominee for these awards, along with Alasdair Harris (Madagascar), Edwin Kinyangui (Kenya), Tom Lalampaa (Kenya), Josia Razafindramanana (Madagascar) and Kerri Volter ,(South Africa).

On the 12th September we will attend a dinner in London to celebrate the progress of Community and Conservation efforts by unique individuals across Africa. Patron Prince William will attend.

This is so heartwarming for the future of endangered rhinos, African wild dogs, elephants, marine life, Vultures, Lemurs and all the myriad other natural wonders of Africa and the communities who safeguard this heritage.

A 60 minute documentary featuring an exclusive interview with The Duke of Cambridge and featuring the work of the Tusk award winners and nominees is due to be broadcast by CNN and ITV (UK) on Sunday 15th September.

About wineandwilddogs

Lin Barrie The Save Valley Conservancy stretches along the upper reaches of the great Save River in the south east of Zimbabwe. The Gonarezhou National Park laps against the southern banks of the Save River and between these two nestles the Malilangwe Wildlife Reserve. These three celebrated wildlife areas form part of the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation Area, (GLTFCA)- a unique wilderness jewel which is home to the “Big Five” (endangered Black and White rhinos, elephants, buffalo, lion, leopard) and the ”Little Six” (Klipspringer, Suni, Duiker, Steenbok, Sharpe's Grysbok and Oribi). Endangered African wild dogs, Cheetah, Brown hyena, Bat-eared foxes and a host of special birds and plants contribute to the immense variety of this ecosystem. Communities around the GLTFCA contribute to innovative partnerships with National Parks and the private sector, forming a sound base on which to manage social, economic and environmental issues. This is home to artist and writer Lin Barrie and her life partner, conservationist Clive Stockil. Expressing her hopes, fears and love for this special ecosystem with oil paints on canvas, Lin Barrie believes that the essence of a landscape, person or animal, can only truly be captured by direct observation. Lin Barrie states: “Through my art, and my writing, I feel an intimate connection with the natural world, and from my extensive field sketches of wild animals, people and landscapes, I create larger works on canvas. Lin's work is in various public and private collections in South Africa, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Australia, England, Canada, Sweden and the United States of America. She is represented by galleries in South Africa, Zimbabwe, England, Kenya and Florida, USA.

    Congratulations Clive and Lin. Clive you really do deserve recognition for the stirling work that you are doing. Your uncle Ray was knighted for his contribution in the Lowveld and so should you be.
