wildlife crime anti poaching

Big Life employs Maasai rangers from local communities who work collaboratively with a vast informer network. Our rangers are expertly trained and well-equipped to tackle a variety of wildlife crimes, including combating wildlife trafficking. We track and apprehend poachers and collaborate with local prosecutors to ensure that they are punished to the fullest extent of the law.

Following the arrest of suspects by Big Life rangers, our Prosecution Officer monitors all major wildlife court cases to ensure that maximum penalties are pursued. It also involves ensuring that all Big Life witnesses and arresting officers attend the necessary cases, as well as working with local prosecutors to improve the handling of wildlife cases.

Meanwhile, Big Life’s intelligence team remains actively involved in investigating wildlife trafficking, both in the immediate ecosystem and well beyond. A strong network of informers has led to the arrest of hundreds of suspects and the confiscation of thousands of kilos of ivory.
