In 2019, the Wild Nature Institute continued our long-term science, education, and advocacy work for wildlife in places that are biologically rich but threatened by human activities.
This year we published five new scientific papers about giraffes and helped obtain endangered status for Masai giraffes. We completed our full set of educational materials and activity guides for all three megaherbivores in our Celebrating Africa’s Giants program, continued our education program at schools across Tanzania, organized a Giraffe Fun Day, and planted trees on International Day of Forests. We spread giraffe conservation messages across Tanzania via creative multi-media including a gospel song on the radio, a music video on buses, and videobooks of our children’s stories on television. We also launched the first edition of Nature’s Giants magazine for children in the U.S.A.
We continued and expanded the world’s largest demographic study of giraffes, began a new giraffe genetics project, and started integrating social perception surveys into our programs.
Read our 2019 Annual Report for more information about all of our programs. As always, we are grateful to all of our donors and supporters, without whom our work would not be possible. #StandTallforGiraffes
