BIG LIFE 2012, the first 6 minute film from Big Life Foundation, shows the urgent poaching situation in East Africa right now, and what Big Life is doing on the ground to deal with it.

The film features animal footage shot in Amboseli in July 2012 by Nick Brandt, and interviews and action from earlier in the year with Richard Bonham, as he and the Big Life rangers pursue poachers within the East African Amboseli ecosystem where Big Life currently operates.
