I've been obsessed with giraffe for as long as I can remember; I began by working with captive giraffe, but it was always my aim to help giraffe in the wild.
There are less than 111,000 giraffe in Africa, and less than 2000 of the critically endangered Kordofan giraffe.
Zakouma National Park in Chad is thought to be home to more than half the world's population, and they have never been researched before.
This project aims to find out as much about the giraffe population's current situation, their needs, and threats, so we can form a conservation strategy with the Chadian government, African Parks (who manage the research site) and Giraffe Conservation Foundation (who bring expertise, support and funding).
All the research on this project is applied, meaning each area of research is designed to directly answer conservation questions to form the conservation strategy and all administration costs I provide myself, meaning every penny donated goes directly towards the field costs - accommodation, food, fuel, vehicle, camera traps, batteries and camera cards. You get the idea.
