Giraffe are extinct in 7 African Countries

In fact, for every four elephant, only one giraffe remains in the wild in Africa—a drop of approximately 30% in the last three decades.

We’re raising awareness and protecting giraffe...

And so can you!

The Giraffe Conservation Foundation (GCF) is dedicated to securing a future for all giraffe populations in the wild. We’ve been actively working to protect giraffe in the wild since 2009.

Our Success

Our Translocation Program is just one of many giraffe conservation actions and a proven success as we are actively bringing giraffe back into areas where they originally reigned.
