By Caroline Chebet, Giants Club African Conservation Fellow, The Standard. Published 15 December 2018. A store full of snares, spears and other weapons used by poachers stands in the administration block at the Mara Triangle, a conservancy within Masai Mara National Reserve. This is testament to untold stories of threats facing wildlife and rangers.
We show the value of conserving Africa's great wild landscapes
Africa’s wild places are some of the most biodiverse ecosystems left on Earth. They have great value both ecologically and economically to people, to countries, and to the planet. But they are under threat. Before they are gone forever, Space for Giants works to secure them and to demonstrate their worth. That means ending the poaching of elephants, because elephants are a keystone species and if they are thriving, their precious habitats are, too. And it means finding new ways to fund forever the protection of these landscapes so they can continue to bring their benefits for generations to come.
