Giraffes are classified as vulnerable to extinction by the IUCN with less than 69,000 estimated to be left in the wild.

As a conservation charity, we’re proud to have the most successful giraffe breeding program in Australasia here at Monarto Safari Park.

Zoos SA is also a long-term supporter of the Giraffe Conservation Foundation who are fighting to save giraffes throughout Africa. Our support (provided through funds from visits and participation in experiences) has helped to purchase GPS satellite tracking units that provide a better understanding of giraffes movements in the wild and habitat use to inform conservation and planning.

Help us create a brighter future for giraffe and other species, by Adopting a Giraffe or making a donation today.
