The following Big Life entities and all who support our programs represent a global effort to protect the diverse and remarkable animals of East Africa and their habitats across the Tsavo-Kilimanjaro-Amboseli ecosystem. In doing so, Big Life simultaneously enriches the lives of the local Maasai people and helps to ensure that they also benefit from the conservation of wildlife and wild lands.

Big Life’s operations on the ground in Kenya are managed by Big Life Kenya. In Tanzania, our operations are managed by our partners at the Honeyguide Foundation. Elsewhere, we have registered charities in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, and loyal supporters from around the world.
