Africa-wide initiatives & programmes
Currently, GCF works on, manages and supports giraffe conservation programmes and initiatives that concern all four species of giraffe in 16 African countries. Our involvement ranges from implementation to providing technical support to partners, from conservation monitoring to hands-on conservation actions, from direct to indirect support.
GCF’s recent research has shown that there is not only one, but four species of giraffe. GCF works on, manages and supports giraffe conservation programmes that concern all four species of giraffe in the wild.

Education and awareness programmes
Giraffe conservation cannot be addressed in isolation. Working with people who share their living spaces with giraffe is of paramount importance. GCF is committed to enhancing conservation capacity and instilling a way of life that embraces conservation principles in Africa.
Giraffe populations are not bound by national borders and most species spread across numerous countries. Employing a regional or transboundary approach is often vital for conservation success to address threats to giraffe and their conservation.
