Protecting over 1.6 million acres of wilderness in the Amboseli-Tsavo-Kilimanjaro ecosystem of East Africa, Big Life partners with local communities to protect nature for the benefit of all.

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.

Co-founded in September 2010 by photographer Nick Brandt, conservationist Richard Bonham, and entrepreneur Tom Hill, Big Life was the first organization in East Africa to establish coordinated cross-border anti-poaching operations. Read more...

"Thanks to Big Life, it is wonderful that Amboseli is more secure, and now one of the few places in Kenya where killing of elephants for ivory is not out of hand."

Iain Douglas-Hamilton, Save the Elephants

"I am convinced that Amboseli would have lost many, many elephants over the last three years if Big Life had not come in to save the day."
