The Wild Nature Institute and PAMS Foundation organized the first-ever celebration of Giraffe Day in Tanzania for students and teachers at Nkaiti Secondary School to honor their national animal, the Masai giraffe—and have fun while doing it.
This school is in the Burunge village Wildlife Management Area, which provides important linkage habitat between Lake Manyara and Tarangire national parks that ensures the freedom to roam for giraffes and other wildlife. Wild Nature Institute is working on research and conservation of this important population of Masai giraffe for future generations to celebrate, and support for community conservation in this area is crucial to these efforts.
Giraffe Day included fun environmental education activities, sports competitions, a school clean-up, arts and crafts, a giraffe quiz, and dramatic performances celebrating Tanzania’s national animal. This the first of many planned community conservation celebrations highlighting the importance of giraffes and other wildlife to the economy, culture, and ecology of Tanzania.
