Giraffe

Come and meet Tom, Dayo and Tico the giraffes at Wild Place Project.

Tom and Dayo have been joined by Tico, the 2 year old reticulated giraffe. Come and catch a glimpse of our three remarkable giraffes in our Benoue National Park exhibit.

Our raised, indoor viewing platform is the perfect way to spot our tallest residents as they graze inside the giraffe house, or venture outside and watch the trio at eye level as they roam gracefully. 
 

An adventure to Cameroon

Come on a journey with us to Benoue National Park and be immersed in what life is like in the wilds of Cameroon, Africa. Take a trip to HQ and find out how we are working to save giraffes from extinction with local conservationists, and see what the eco-guards use to track and save giraffes from threats in the wild. 

Explore our Cameroonian inspired Market Village with a market stall and decoration for an authentic African adventure.

There are lots of viewpoints into the enclosure, including watching the animals at the watering hole from 'the hide', where you can spy on our tall friends through a telescope. Test your eyesight and see if you can identify hidden giraffe spot patterns around the enclosure!

Follow our exciting trail of tracks around the exhibit - do you know what a giraffe footprint looks like?

FACT: Did you know giraffes love a power nap? They only need between 20 minutes and two hours sleep per day!


Conservation

Poaching, bushmeat trade and habitat loss are threatening giraffes in the wild and without help, there could be a real chance they will become extinct.

Our aim at Wild Place Project is to protect giraffes, safeguarding a population in human care alongside a sustainable population in the wild.

We sent our conservation team to Benoue National Park in Cameroon to search for a sustainable population of giraffes. 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 giraffes and in turn, provide long-term protection for giraffes in the wild.
