Tusk’s first ever Conservation Award winner on brokering peace with feuding tribes in Kenya.

As Hampton Court Palace prepares to host the 10th Tusk Conservation Awards, Helen is in Northern Kenya with the awards’ partner/co-creators Ninety One to meet their first ever winner, Tom Lalampaa.

Tom – CEO of the North Rangelands Trust – explains how he’s found success brokering peace with feuding tribes in Northern Kenya using a conservancy method to ensure communities, wildlife and the habitat can thrive together.

Tom tells Helen about life in the Samburu Tribe, growing up with nomadic parents and 16 siblings, and reflects on what it meant to receive his award in London from Tusk’s royal patron HRH William, the Prince of Wales.
