What better way to spread holiday cheer than by giving gifts that help protect wildlife? Each unique gift idea below generates funding for Big Life and enables our community rangers to protect animals and save habitat throughout the entire year. With the holidays fast approaching, this is a great way to share your love of nature with your family and friends!
Big Life Merchandise
Big Life’s online store is stocked with sustainable giving options, and 100% of the proceeds benefit Big Life. We have something for everyone, including insulated tumblers, wine cups, and water bottles, organic baby onesies, as well as several made-in-Kenya options. Not sure what to give? Buy a gift certificate.
You can also make a donation in honor or in memory of a loved one.
Nick Brandt Signed Books
Purchase a signed book with a personalized inscription from Big Life’s co-founder, Nick Brandt. At least 50% of the purchase price directly benefits Big Life Foundation. Please note that Nick is currently traveling and will start fulfilling personalized book orders starting November 21st. Just published, The Day May Break is a new series of photographs by Nick Brandt, taken in Zimbabwe and Kenya in late 2020. It is the first part of a global series portraying people and animals that have been negatively impacted by environmental degradation and destruction.
“A landmark body of work by one of photography’s great environmental champions. Showing how deeply our fates are intertwined, Brandt portrays people and animals together, causing us to reflect on the real-life consequences of climate change. Channeling his outrage into quiet determination, the result is a portrait of us all, at a critical moment in the Anthropocene."
- Phillip Prodger, Photography Historian, former Head of Photographs at the National Portrait Gallery, London.
From the first bottle sold, Elephant Gin has donated 15% of profits to elephant conservation and has raised over €1,000,000 to date for elephants in Africa. Big Life is honored to be one of Elephant Gin’s conservation partners. Visit their website to learn more and see where you can purchase an award-winning bottle for your holiday gathering. Cheers!
Temple St Clair
Temple St. Clair has a tradition of giving back by supporting initiatives focused on community, conservation, and the arts. This year, Temple is generously donating 20% of sales from the stunning 18K Vine Amulet pictured above. Temple serves as a member of Big Life’s Advisory Board and has been supporting Big Life’s conservation efforts in East Africa for several years. You can view the entire beautiful collection here.
Big Life’s newest partnership is with Mazarin, a sustainable fine jewelry house based in Paris. Mazarin contributes 10% of the sale price of each Memory Charm bracelet to Big Life, directly supporting our mobile ranger unit in the Chyulu Hills, Kenya.
One of the best ways to support conservation is to visit the areas that are being protected. A strong tourism economy helps to ensure protection over the long-term. And a safari to East Africa is a lifetime dream for many. Big Life has several tourism partners that support conservation in the Greater Amboseli ecosystem.

Part Time Rangers
For every Part Time Rangers can sold, a portion of proceeds goes towards animal conservation initiatives across the globe, including Big Life’s mission. Australia and New Zealand friends, be on the lookout for these colorful cans and save while you sip!
Thank you for considering these impactful gifts and for supporting Big Life’s important work. Together we can continue to create a world where conservation supports the people, and people support conservation.
Happy early holidays from everyone at Big Life!
