Giraffe Conservation Foundation is aiming to raise $1,000,000 for their Twiga Tracker Programme. They are aiming to deploy at least 250 solar-powered GPS satellite tracking units on giraffe throughout Africa. Twiga Tracker will help us learn important information about giraffe movements and how they use their habitat.
This map shows the movements of 11 endangered Reticulated giraffe that were tagged in Northern Kenya in 2017 together with our partner SDZG Wildlife Conservancy. The cluster on the left shows giraffe that were tagged at Loisaba Conservancy. We now know for sure that the giraffe move beyond the conservancy boundaries and use a significantly larger range. This is important information for the long-term protection of these endangered giraffe and to save them for future generations.
All donations Giraffe Conservation Foundation receive in June will support Twiga Tracker. Help smash the $1million target and donate now! www.giraffeconservation.org/donate
Donors of US$2,500 or more, get exclusive access to follow 4 giraffe in Africa online.
Staying at Elewana Loisaba Tented Camp, Elewana Loisaba StarBeds and Elewana Loisaba Lodo Springs helps ensure SDZG Wildlife Conservancy remains a catalyst for conservation, wildlife research and community development.
Loisaba’s mission is to protect and enhance critical wildlife diversity, abundance and habitat in the landscape, which sits on the western edge of one of Kenya’s most important elephant movement corridors. The profit from Elewana Loisaba Tented Camp, Elewana Loisaba Star Beds and Elewana Loisaba Lodo Springs, along with revenue from livestock, brings us closer to achieving our ultimate aim of creating a sustainable conservancy providing protection of endangered species and their habitat, as well as over 300 jobs to the local community.
