We had the pleasure of spotting the beautiful Asha surrounded by her close-knit gang at their favorite gathering spot. Among them were her daughter Fria, her dear friend Dorothy (who is one of our tagged giraffes), along with Dorothy’s son ‘lil Dot. Also joining the gang were an older female known as Diana Rossicones, as well as Supergirl, another female with an ossi-unit tag. A sub-adult male completed the group. It was a fantastic opportunity to introduce the gang and extend our belated Happy New Year wishes to all of them. We’re thrilled to see that everyone is thriving, and we can’t wait to share more updates on Asha and her wonderful friends with you. Stay tuned for regular updates!
About Giraffe Conservation Foundation
Every donation supports our work with local and international partners, affecting over 100 million acres of giraffe habitat.
The Giraffe Conservation Foundation (GCF) is the only NGO in the world that concentrates solely on the conservation and management of giraffe in the wild throughout Africa. We are dedicated to securing a future for all giraffe populations in the wild.
Our conservation story started in Namibia, where we have studied several giraffe populations for over two decades now. Our findings have directly impacted the global understanding of giraffe and how best to save them. It was the GCF team that first realized that there are four different species of giraffe (and not only one as previously thought). Our pioneering work in Africa also led to global recognition of giraffe’s silent extinction on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
However, our work is not done—there is still so much to learn. It is only through better understanding that we can develop targeted, sustainable conservation strategies with the local people who share their space with wildlife to secure the long-term future of giraffe in Africa.
We envision a world where all giraffe can live wild and free within their historical ranges or habitats throughout Africa and are protected by the people around them.
Join us on our journey and help save giraffe today, before it’s too late tomorrow.
