Mantis Proudly Sponsors the Annual Tusk Conservation Awards

Mantis is proud to announce their sponsorship of the second annual Tusk Conservation Awards to be held  in London on 25 November 2014. Sharing Mantis’ passion for conservation, Tusk has been working since 1990 to build a sustainable future for the people and the wildlife of the African Continent; and have initiated this high profile award ceremony to recognise and reward the incredible conservation work being done by individuals in Africa.

Presented by HRH The Duke of Cambridge, The Prince William Award for Conservation in Africa is a lifetime achievement award for dedication and exceptional contribution to conservation in Africa; while The Tusk Conservation Award, supported by Land Rover, recognises conservationists whose work demonstrates an exceptional commitment to conservation. The award winners in both categories will be presented with an Investec grant to further their work.

The Draycott Hotel in Chelsea, London, is an award winning five-star luxury boutique hotel and one of Mantis’s flagship properties. As part of Mantis’ sponsorship of the Tusk Awards, the nominees and judges will enjoy a private dinner at the Draycott Hotel on 24 November and will be hosted at the hotel for the duration of their stay in London.

Other sponsors of this exclusive event held in London are Landrover, Investec, Tiffany & Co, Moët Hennessy and British Airways.

“We’re massively proud to be associated with the Tusk Conservation Awards, these special individuals deserve this recognition; everyday they put their lives on the line to protect Africa’s abused wildlife – Mantis is behind them all the way” said Paul Gardiner Marketing Director of Mantis Collection.
