Introducing The World Book Encyclopedia: 2020 Edition

World Book editors continue to find new and innovative themes to showcase on their masterpiece, The World Book Encyclopedia, each and every year. This year is no exception and it’s for a great cause!

The spinescape of the 2020 Edition of The World Book Encyclopedia aims to highlight the plight of the last remaining “Big Tuskers” – elephants with tusks weighing more than 46kg each. Devastatingly, only 20 of these elephants are left on Earth, and almost half of them are in Tsavo, a region of Kenya. Award-winning wildlife photographer Will Burrard-Lucas, with the help of Tsavo Trust, was able to photograph these rarely encountered elephants which dons the spinescape of the 2020 World Book Encyclopedia. The goal of Tsavo Trust is to conserve the wilderness of the Tsavo Conservation Area, which is under threat from wildlife crime, climate change, and habitat loss. Tsavo Trust’s “Big Tusker Project” was established to secure a future for the big tuskers before they become extinct.

World Book recognise the importance of conservation and strive to educate future generations about environmental issues. Therefore, for each set of The World Book Encyclopedia 2020 sold, a portion of the proceeds from the sale will be donated to Tsavo Trust and the Big Tusker Project. A fantastic cause.
