Land Rover is pleased to announce it will be sponsoring the 2014 Tusk Conservation Award. Tusk select three up-and-coming conservationists whose work has already demonstrated an exceptional commitment to conservation and provide one individual with a grant of £15,000.

This work can take place within the spheres of protecting endangered species or threatened habitat, promotion of environmental education and the development of community-driven conservation.

Last year's winner, Tom Lalampaa said, "The award has been well received in Kenya by everyone from the British High Commission to the village elders in the communities I work with. The award was not about me, it was about the incredible people I work with and the Northern Rangelands Trust.

"I was extremely inspired by the work of my fellow finalists last year and I applaud their commitments and achievements. I hope these awards will continue to inspire a new generation of future Conservation leaders in Africa and across the world."
