Welcome to the first edition of our newsletter. Space for Giants has hit the ground running since our official launch at the House of Lords on December 12th, with some significant wins in our bid to create new models for conservation, enabling giants to live alongside people in our rapidly changing world. However the current elephant poaching surge threatens to overshadow much of our hard earned successes. As a consequence we will have to adjust our priorities to tackle this problem both here in Laikipia in Kenya where we our based and internationally, where the ultimate solution lies. As we progress with our plans and activities, we will endeavor to keep you informed in a manner that I hope inspires you to join us, in whatever capacity you can. Please let us know what you think of our newsletter & work. The Maasai have a saying “Meisha elukunya Nabo Engeno” which translates to “one head cannot contain all knowledge”. For conservation to succeed, we must work together.
