Nick Brandt - Big Life Foundation benefit print - Echo & Family, Amboseli, 2005

Nick Brandt started Big Life Foundation in September 2010 in urgent response to the massive increase in poaching of animals in East Africa. The Open Edition of ECHO & FAMILY, AMBOSELI, 2005 has been specifically created for Big Life Foundation. 100% of the proceeds from the sales go to the Foundation.

ECHO & FAMILY, AMBOSELI, 2005 by Nick Brandt

(Archival Pigment Print on Hahnmeuhle Cotton Rag Paper)

This is Nick Brandt's only close shot of Echo, the world-famous elephant who lived in Amboseli. She was an amazing elephant, the matriarch of her herd for over 36 years, until finally, the terrible drought of 2009 took her life at the age of 65. By purchasing this print, you help ensure that Echo's offspring, and their offspring, continue to be protected and thrive.

Since September 2010, Big Life Foundation has established a dozen anti-poaching outposts in the Amboseli region of Kenya and Tanzania, purchased a dozen patrol vehicles, hired nearly 100 rangers, and in the process caught and had arrested some of the worst, most prolific long-term elephant poachers in the region. As a result, where Big Life has a presence, the poaching of all animals has been quickly and effectively reduced. However, in the areas not covered by the Big Life teams, the poaching continues, out of control and unabated. You can find out more about Big Life Foundation here.
