In May 2018, 35 experts working directly on giraffe or in thematic areas relevant to conservation-based decision-making from NGOs, academia, and African governments came together to develop a unifying Africa-wide Giraffe Conservation Science Management Framework.
2017 continues to be an exciting year for giraffe conservation. World Giraffe Day – 21 June was again a great success around the world. A big thank you to all of you who celebrated with us and our giant friends to raise awareness and support for their plight in Africa.
World Giraffe Day is an exciting annual event initiated by the Giraffe Conservation Foundation (GCF) to celebrate the tallest animal on the longest day (or night) of the year – 21 June – every year! This year, World Giraffe Day 2017 focuses on the Masai giraffe in southern Kenya and Tanzania.
