Tusk USA, an African wildlife conservation organization, is celebrating the work of the world-renowned wildlife photographer, David Yarrow on Saturday, August 12 at 5 p.m. during An Evening in the Wild. Tusk's Royal Patron is HRH The Duke of Cambridge, Prince William. The event will be held at Harbor East in East Hampton.

"I'm so honored to be hosting this event for HRH Prince William's African wildlife conservation organization, Tusk, at my new restaurant Harbor East," said James Willis, owner of Harbor East. "As a child in Australia, I grew up understanding the sacredness of all creatures, so for me, to help raise money in the fight against poachers, illegal wild life trade and to support all the rangers who stand up and fight these terrible crimes is dear to my heart."

Tusk's mission is to advance innovation to protect Africa's wildlife and natural habitat. A portion of the event's proceeds will go directly to Tusk to further community-based wildlife conservation initiatives throughout Africa.

David Yarrow, a long-term partner of Tusk, will discuss his wildlife photography as the featured speaker of the event. Yarrow has built an unrivaled reputation for capturing the beauty of the planet's remote landscapes, cultures, and endangered animals. He most recently published a book entitled Wild Encounters which was named "2016 Art Book of the Year" by Amazon. Learn more about Yarrow's work at davidyarrow.photography.

"Having David Yarrow, the world-renowned art photographer and long term partner of Tusk, share his experiences and showcase his profound images at Harbor East is a privilege not to be missed on Saturday," Willis added. "It's a chance to give something back to our precious world and help save these animals from extinction."

Tickets to An Evening in the Wild are $300.

Harbor East is located at 44 Three Mile Harbor Road in East Hampton. For more information about An Evening in the Wild, visit donate.tusk.org. For more information about Tusk USA, visit us.tusk.org.
