Big Life Foundation


Straddling southern Kenya and northern Tanzania, Big Life Foundation (Big Life) works to protect over 1.6 million acres in the Amboseli-Tsavo-Kilimanjaro (Greater Amboseli) ecosystem. Big Life utilizes innovative conservation strategies and collaborates closely with local communities to address the ecosystem’s greatest threats: wildlife poaching, human-wildlife conflict, and habitat destruction. This includes protecting one of the greatest populations of elephants left in East Africa. Since its inception, Big Life has expanded to employ hundreds of local Maasai rangers—with more than 30 permanent outposts and tent-based field units, 13 Land Cruiser patrol vehicles, 3 tracker dogs, and 2 planes for aerial surveillance.
