Why Giraffes?

These beloved creatures are one of the best recognized, but least researched large animals in Africa. Giraffe numbers have plummeted down over 40% just since the 1990s. They are already extinct in seven African countries. We support the Giraffe Conservation Foundation in their work with governments, universities, and non-governmental organizations to support giraffe research and conservation across the continent.
