Space for Giants has helped a Kenyan court convict a man found illegally with ivory after tracking down a key witness whose lack of testimony was delaying the prosecution.
In a world first for conservation campaigners, Space for Giants has launched a global campaign to build a ‘herd’ of digital elephants to march across the globe to help secure the future for the world’s largest mammal.

FT: At Loisaba, a 56,000-acre conservancy in central Kenya, they are betting the best ways to save elephants is to fatten cattle. Set up in the heart of the expansive Laikipia plateau 18 months ago by conservationists and a local rancher, its managers are taking a novel — and longer-term — approach to protecting the world’s largest land mammal in which tackling poaching is only a part of the solution.
“Just say we stop poaching,” says Max Graham, one of Loisaba’s founders and the chief executive of Space for Giants, an elephant protection organisation. “Then you’ve got all these elephants. How are you going to deal with them?”
