Founded in 2009 by a group of enthusiastic volunteers, the Giraffe Conservation Foundation is the only NGO in the world that concentrates solely on the conservation and management of giraffe in the wild throughout Africa. Limited conservation research has been undertaken on giraffe throughout Africa and their numbers have plummeted by almost 40% over the past three decades.
Dedicated to a sustainable future for these threatened animals, GCF is established as a Namibian non-government-organisation, with the objective to raise awareness for, provide support to and secure a future for giraffe, and conserve their habitat in Africa.
