Project Summary

Big Life Foundation, a close partner with The Thin Green Line Foundation, engages with and forms relationships with local communities and creates an on-the-ground presence to protect wildlife and wild places across Africa. Big Life currently employs hundreds of Maasai Rangers who actively protect over two-million acres of wilderness in East Africa. This particular project was established to provide anti-poaching training to the Community Rangers in order to provide improved protection to themselves and the wildlife they defend.

Key skills training for Big Life Foundation proved to be very successful, with the objectives being met in setting the foundations and benchmarks for all future Ranger training. Andre Badenhorst
