Giraffe House Appeal
With your help we have raised an incredible £233,085 for giraffe! We couldn't do it without you.
Giraffe are in very serious trouble in the wild. These iconic animals are disappearing quietly and quickly towards extinction.
Giraffe number have fallen from 140,000 to less than 80,000 in just 15 years. There are now fewer giraffe left in the wild than African elephants.
If nothing is done to protect giraffe from poaching, bushmeat trade and habitat loss then there is real chance they will become extinct.
Our aim at Wild Place Project is to protect giraffe, safeguarding a population in human care alongside a sustainable population in the wild.
Your donations will enable us to introduce giraffe to Wild Place Project and in turn provide long term protection for giraffe in the wild.
To build something as ginormous as a giraffe house we need your help to raise £750,000.
In August members our conservation team will be heading to Cameroon to begin the search for a sustainable population of giraffe. They'll be doing this with the help of our brand new drone, kindly gifted to us by Maplins.
