Giraffe House Appeal
We have received enormous support for The Giraffe House Appeal.
Your donations and support have enabled us to begin building our new giraffe house and this summer we will be introducing giraffe to Wild Place Project. We couldn't have done it without you!
We are very pleased to be able to help giraffe in the wild thanks to your support. Poaching, bushmeat trade and habitat loss are threatening giraffe in the wild and without help, there would be a real chance they could become extinct.
Our aim at Wild Place Project is to protect giraffe, safeguarding a population in human care alongside a sustainable population in the wild.
In August, we sent our conservation expert Osiris Doumbe to Benoue National Park in Cameroon to search for a sustainable population of giraffe. He took with him our brand new drone, kindly gifted to us by Maplin.
Drone technology has allowed the eco-guards at the park to search larger areas in order to establish giraffe population numbers and locations.
This is vital work to support giraffe and in turn provide long term protection for giraffe in the wild.
