Elephants, Lions & Rhinos: Rangers Defending Wildlife & Habitat
(aka) Big Life Foundation USA
Stop the killing of elephants and rhinos! Using highly effective and innovative anti-poaching conservation strategies, Big Life Foundation protects East Africa's wildlife and wild lands.
June 2016: A four-year-old boy named Sainingo is growing up in the Chyulu Hills in southern Kenya with his family.
Elephants and giraffes, zebras and gazelles, lions and jackals and leopards also live here. Every day, Sainingo's father--one of the longest-serving Big Life Foundation rangers--proudly goes to work to protect these very animals.
At least in one small corner of the continent, this is the Africa of today. With your help, it can also be the Africa of not just little Sainingo's tomorrow, but of all our tomorrows.
Big Life Foundation employs hundreds of brave Maasai rangers--with more than 40 permanent outposts and tent-based field units, 13 vehicles, tracker dogs, and aerial surveillance--protecting 2 million acres of wilderness in the Amboseli-Tsavo-Kilimanjaro ecosystem of East Africa.
As a result, poaching of all animals in the ecosystem has dramatically declined since Big Life's inception in 2010.
