Big Life Foundation

With an emphasis on anti-poaching, Big Life Foundation was founded to conserve the wildlife and the lands of East Africa. As the only organization operating on both sides of the Kenya/Tanzania border, Big Life’s teams are in a unique position to coordinate the pursuit of poachers who previously escaped arrest.

Because Big Life recognizes that sustainable conservation can only be achieved through a community-based collaborative approach, it strives to improve the quality of life for the resident Maasai people. Big Life employs nearly 300 local Maasai, making it the largest single employer in the Amboseli-Tsavo ecosystem.
