Adoptee Updates:

What's new in Windy's world?

Windy (HNBF030), who was first spotted in 2002 as a young female sub-adult, is now a mature adult desert-dwelling giraffe. At over eighteen years of age, Windy is one of the oldest documented wild female giraffe in the whole of Africa. Scientifically, Windy’s advanced age is making history! She spends most of her time in the Hoanib River, where she is often seen in the company of younger adult female giraffe and their calves. As an experienced mother – having had a number of offspring of her own – Windy readily takes on the role as the resident ‘aunty’, watching over and protecting other giraffe’s calves while their mothers venture away for short periods in search of better browse.

All our giraffe adoptees live wild and free in the vast expanses of northwest Namibia.
