Prince William is to give his name to a new lifetime achievement award, which will recognise the outstanding work of a top conservationist in Africa each year. Tusk, the African conservation charity of which the Prince is Royal Patron, today announced that the Tusk Conservation Awards will include a lifetime achievement award that is to be known as The Prince William Award for Conservation in Africa. The awards, launched in autumn 2012 in partnership with global investment firm Investec Asset Management, attracted fifty nominations from across Africa.
