Big cats have been central to human culture since our very evolution. Yet the African lion population has shrunk in half over the past 25 years. Conflict with humans and competition for space are some of the greatest threats lions face.

The Tusk Lion Trail is an art trail with a difference. Spanning the globe it will showcase the work of some of the world’s most incredible artists, while raising awareness of the urgency to protect all wildlife in Africa and to support the communities sharing the same landscapes.

Two main lion prides will stalk the streets of London and The Hamptons, New York, while smaller prides and coalitions will pop up in major cities around the world.

The designs, contributing artists, locations and trails will be revealed right here on World Lion Day, August 10th 2021. You’ll also be able to download trail maps and find out more about the artworks and the #TuskLionTrail movement, including how funds raised will support local conservation and community development at its best.

These unique works of art will be on public display around the world from 10th August 2021. They will be auctioned by leading global auction house Bonhams with funds raised providing vital support for Tusk’s conservation projects protecting lion and other iconic African species.

The initiative is presented by DHL in association with ISPS Handa and each lion is generously sponsored by a Lion Trail corporate partner or donor.
