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.
