    habitat

    The Maasai are traditionally a pastoralist society, their wealth directly associated with their livestock. Larges herds of cows, sheep, and goats graze across the ecosystem continually. Managing the impacts of grazing on the rangelands for the overall health of the ecosystem has become a major program focus.

    LAND

    Big Life has helped to establish a sustainable farming program, in addition to helping develop a grazing plan to manage livestock movements and improve the condition of existing pasture. Rangers also actively protect the land by fighting against habitat destruction such as illegal logging or charcoaling. Lastly, we’ve partnered with local communities, partner NGOs, and local government to implement a carbon credit program in the Chyulu Hills to protect it from deforestation and overgrazing.

    WATER

    Water is one of the most precious resources in the African bush. Big Life rangers actively work to reduce illegal water extraction within communities as well as maintain strategic waterholes and boreholes for wildlife in water-vulnerable areas of the ecosystem.
