Giraffe conservation translocations can be highly beneficial for (re-)establishing new or bolstering small existing giraffe populations.
They are an important part of our giraffe conservation toolbox!
However, they are a significant and challenging logistical undertaking and require careful planning and long-term commitment including pre-translocation assessments and post-translocation monitoring. Together with our partners we go to great lengths in our efforts to secure a future for giraffe, and success has already been achieved in several giraffe range States – most recently in Kenya, Malawi, Namibia, Niger, South Africa and Uganda. So far, our conservation translocation programme, working closely with governments and other partners, has increased and/or augmented over 7 million acres of giraffe habitat throughout Africa.
Translocations are truly collaborative efforts with the range State government, local communities, donors and other stakeholders.
