TUSK charity week is a big success

Earlier this summer, Woburn Safari Park's team of keepers held a fun-filled charity week in aid of the animal conservation charity TUSK, with over £2,500 raised to help conservation projects out in Africa. 

With over 25 years of experience initiating and funding conservation, community development and environmental education programmes across Africa, keepers chose five TUSK initiatives to directly support:

- Ruaha Carnivore Project
- Mountain Bongo Surveillence Charity
- Mount Kenya Trust
- Lewa Wildlife Conservancy
- Big Life Foundation

Throughout the week, visitors were able visit the TUSK charity shall set up by the keepers just outside the Safari Restaurant in the Foot Safari. Here, visitors were able to speak to keepers and learn more about TUSK's important work as well as enjoy raffles, tombolas and other fun games.

Penguin Mini Vip

In addition to the stall, visitors could purchase mini-VIP experiences to get even closer to some of the animals here at Woburn, including the Humboldt penguins, lemurs and meerkats. Visitors were also invited to have their picture taken with one of the female adult Asian elephants after the talk and demonstration at Elephant Meadow.

Thank you to everyone that visited over the week to help raise money and awareness of this very important cause.
