West Seattle Montessori & Academy students sell scones to stop poaching


Last week, Advertiser West Seattle Montessori & Academy was up to something AWESOME – they sold scones during morning arrivals to support an anti-poaching program called BigLife.

BigLife is a anti-poaching group in East Africa.

Scones were sold for $1 each and these kids raised $750!

Big Life was the first organization in East Africa with co-ordinated cross-border anti-poaching operations.

As of July 2013, Big Life’s rangers have made 1,030 arrests and confiscated 3,012 weapons/poaching tools since November 2010.

Recognizing that sustainable conservation can only be achieved through a community-based collaborative approach, Big Life uses innovative conservation strategies to address the greatest threats, reduce the loss of wildlife to poaching, defeat the ivory trade, mitigate human-wildlife conflict, protect the great predators, and manage scarce and fragile natural resources.

Big Life’s vision is to take the successful holistic conservation model in the Amboseli-Tsavo ecosystem and replicate it across the African continent.
