â€œI find hope in knowing that with the right people and circumstances, ecosystems can be successfully protected,â€ he said. â€œThat is what, so far, we have managed to do with the Big Life Foundation in the Amboseli/Kilamanjaro ecosystem in Kenya. Conservation relies so much on the support of the community. Itâ€™s really a mutual situation: if conservation supports the community, that helps the people economically in the long term, and so they, reciprocally, support conservation.â€
