Your contribution towards providing extra protection for Tsavo's Great tuskers

An investment for elephants and people

It costs Tsavo Trust £5,500 / $8,000 each month to keep our aircraft flying over Tsavo, monitoring Tsavo’s last great tuskers and famous red elephant herds. Your donation can help provide extra protection for these awesome giants of the animal kingdom, while safeguarding people’s livelihoods that depend on wildlife tourism.

Any amount, large or small, will do a lot to help - here are a few examples of what your donation can accomplish:

£5,500 / $8,000 keeps our conservation aircraft airborne for one month, including fuel, maintenance and all associated running costs.

£1,840 / $2,940 keeps fuel in our conservation aircraft for one month.

£625 / $1,000 covers the cost of two essential aircraft safety and maintenance checks, required by law every 50 hours of flying.

£160 / $260 keeps our conservation aircraft in the air for one hour, including fuel, maintenance, and all associated running costs.

£120 / $185 contributes towards the salary of an aircraft attendant, helping to provide employment in an area of high unemployment in Kenya.

£16 / $25 pays for a monthly supply of aero oil, essential for the functioning of the aircraft.

£10 / $16 provides a useful contribution to Tsavo Trust's 'Big Tusker Project' when combined with support from our other partners.
