How your ticket helps our conservation efforts
Sadly, giraffe are facing trouble in the wild. Habitat loss, poaching and civil unrest has seen giraffe numbers plummet from around 155,000 in 1985 to about 70,000 today.
We’re committed to continuing our successful giraffe breeding program, considered the most successful in Australasia, to ensure generations to come can enjoy the wonder of these gentle giants. Every calf born is an important contribution to the breeding program working to secure the future of the species.
We’re also proud to partner with the Giraffe Conservation Foundation to raise valuable funds for Twiga Tracker, the largest giraffe GPS satellite tracking programme in Africa to learn more about giraffes’ spatial movements and habitat use in the wild. This project has local groups in Uganda working to save the Nubian Giraffe, a unique subspecies that is vital to maintaining genetic diversity within the world’s giraffe population.
By purchasing a ticket to our Giraffe Safari experience, your support will help us continue our important conservation work to ensure these gentle giants stay a stride ahead of extinction. To support us even further you can also adopt our giraffe or make a tax deductible donation.
