It’s not often in life you get to be part of something monumental - I’m very lucky to have been involved and partake of an amazing #conservation success - reintroducing and securing a future for #WestAfricanGiraffe in #Niger in a place they were wiped out from 50 years ago. #GCF, the Niger Government, #SaharaConservationFund, myself and others undertook the first-ever giraffe translocation in #WestAfrica. We are incredibly excited to share this short film on #OperationSahelGiraffe with you! 🎥🎥🎥 SEE FULL FILM LINK IN BIO @sean_viljoen

Po pěti letech plánování, měsících příprav a týdnech tvrdé práce, nastal velký ochranářský úspěch - založení nové populace vzácných žiraf západoafrických v Gadabedji Biosphere Reserve v Nigeru. Republika Niger je jediná země, která se může pyšnit výskytem tohoto poddruhu. V polovině 90. let 20. století byly jejich počty odhadovány na pouhých 50 jedinců! Nyní se díky snahám vlády a nevládních organizací jejich populace ve volné přírodě vyšplhala 600 jedinců. GCF společně s vládou Nigeru, Sahara Conservation Fund a dalšími partnery provedla vůbec první převoz žiraf v západní Africe. Jedním z partnerů byla i naše fakulta, která k převozům vyslala svou studentku Kateřina Gašparová, ta se připojila k týmu během převozu a následně strávila měsíc s osmi žirafami v jejich novém domově v rezervaci. Kateřina o své cestě řekla: "Připojit se k takto významnému projektu bylo pro mě jako splnění snu. Sběr dat pro mou disertační práci byla příjemná aktivita, a chvíle, které jsem mohla strávit v blízkosti takto vzácných a půvabných zvířat jsem si velice užila." To, jak to celé probíhalo můžete vidět v krátkém filmu níže ******************************************** T.G.I.F. - ThanksGiraffe It's Friday! #OperationSahelGiraffe 8: After years of planning, months of preparation and weeks of hard work all came together: what an amazing #conservation success.

#Niger has shown amazing foresight in protecting the rare #WestAfricanGiraffe. There are only about 600 West African giraffe remaining on earth – all of them living in communal areas only 60km south-east of Niger’s capital Niamey. If something went wrong here, West African giraffe could go extinct forever. Here’s a short clip from @sean_viljoen short film that releases Feb 8 about this heroic effort to move some of these giraffe 800kms to reintroduce them to a former home, and create a second population.

What happens when a dedicated team is determined to make a difference. Eight #WestAfricanGiraffe were individually captured and moved, reintroduced back to their historical range in Eastern #Niger.

Thanks to the amazing #conservation efforts of the #Niger government and NGO partners, #WestAfricanGiraffe numbers in #Niger have increased since the mid-1990s to over 600 individuals. While this development brings hope for the species, there is still risk in having the entire remaining population in one location. #operationsahelgiraffe aims to establish a new satellite population in a protected area to diversify that risk.

I'm excited to announce that on the 8th of February, the Short Film from my time in Niger with @giraffe_conservation, Sahara Conservation Fund and @ivan.carter will be released!! In the following week, I'll be sharing more information around this amazing conservation intitiative and I can't wait to spread the word. Historically, #WestAfricanGiraffe roamed all over #WestAfrica - from Senegal to Nigeria. Today they are in trouble. Their numbers were down to 50 individuals in the mid-1990s and through forward thinking conservation, have recovered to over 600 individuals today.

It truly was an amazing couple of weeks in Chad at Zakouma National Park. It was fascinating to learn more about this amazing park and the incredible work @africanparksnetwork have been doing to secure it's future and protect it's wildlife. Such a privilege to once again be working alongside the team from @giraffe_conservation as they undertook the first collaring of the critically endangered Kordofan giraffe population here. I've a busy few weeks coming up as we work through our images and videos but I'll be sneaking a few out to you guys. Can you spot him? There's a little cutie hiding in the dust as the sun came up (as a photographer I soon fell in love with the incredible light that the early mornings and late afternoons created, backlighting heaven through the dust). I loved this shot, it spoke to me on many levels capturing a mystical quality of this beautiful landscape but also a poignant reminder that these giraffe have recently been listed as critically endangered, clinging to existence in some particularly hostile & difficult locations that are immediately at odds with the softness of this image, reminding us that without the work of people like African parks and giraffe conservation foundation they could vanish from this world far too easily & simple become ghosts lost to the dust. @mygobe UVFilter #sunriseinafrica#giraffe#criticallyendangered#kordofangiraffe#giraffeconservationfoundation#africanparks#zakouma#chad#zakoumanationalpark#wildlifeconservation#conservationphotography#babygiraffe#africanwilderness#africansafari#wildlifephotography#gobefilter#uvfilter#canoncamera#northerngiraffe#savegiraffe#naturephotography#africageographic#natgeowild#sunrise#wildlifeatsunrise

One of the best places to spot #giraffe in #southafrica is the #WesternShores section of the #iSimangaliso#Wetland#Park in #kwazulunatal. These animals are easily seen in herds of up to 20 #animals, with lots of tiny babies around at the moment. One could make the mistake of thinking they are common - but the reality is that giraffe are under enormous pressure and are facing #extinction. The main threats are poaching and habitat loss.

IUCN RED LIST CONFIRMS : GIRAFFE UNDER THREAT... The iconic giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis), one of the world’s most recognisable animals and the tallest land mammal, has moved from ‘Least Concern’ to ‘Vulnerable’ in the newly released International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species. Human population growth poses the largest threat to giraffe in Africa today. Habitat loss and changes through expanding agriculture and mining, illegal hunting, increasing human-wildlife conflict, as well as civil unrest, are all factors that are pushing giraffe towards extinction. This news follows the recent genetic based research by GCF, Senckenberg Biodiversity and Climate Change Research Centre and other partners, that suggests that there are four distinct species of giraffe instead of only one, the IUCN currently only recognises giraffe as one species. Should these new genetic findings be confirmed and become widely accepted, this would likely result in three of the four giraffe species being listed as under considerable threat on the IUCN Red List.

WORLD GIRAFFE DAY 🦒 - Throwback to my birthday last year when Laurence booked a Giraffe Safari at @portlympnepark in Kent, which as you can see from my face, was utterly wonderful. The animals are of course still in captivity, but in contrast to a zoo, they had so much freedom to roam and dense shrubbery to hide themselves away in. - The thing about giraffes (apart from the fact I bloody love them) is that many people don’t realise their numbers are rapidly depleting, nor the fact there is a very real chance of them becoming extinct in the wild (and in our lifetimes) which breaks my fucking heart. - The human race is destroying the world we live in, and many of its wonderful species, with our ever growing population and self-entitled attitudes. It’s unsustainable and I sincerely hope we realise that and manage to turn things around before it’s too late. - We don’t own this planet. 🌍

BIG 🦒 News: Masai #giraffes Cami and Zuri are both pregnant and due later this summer/early fall! As part of our #WorldGiraffeDay celebration, we made the special announcement this morning that these two giraffes are expecting, which will be the first giraffe births at the Zoo since 1999 and the first calves to be born at the Zoo’s Heart of Africa region. Proud papa, Enzi was also there for the festivities! The sex of the calves is not yet known. Both mothers are being closely monitored by the Zoo’s animal care staff, and the calves appear to be healthy and growing steadily according to most recent ultrasounds conducted by the Zoo’s animal health team. The pairing of Enzi with both Zuri and Cami was based on a breeding recommendation from The Association of @Zoos_Aquariums’ (AZA) Species Survival Plan® (SSP) for giraffes. In addition to sharing the exciting pregnancy news and offering special giraffe conservation-themed activities for guests, the World Giraffe Day celebration also featured the Zoo’s first public plasma draw demonstration. The Columbus Zoo and the @CheyenneMountainZoo in Colorado are the co-founders of the giraffe plasma bank and, now along with the @GreenvilleZoo in South Carolina, are the only zoological facilities that are currently able to consistently collect large volumes of plasma from giraffe to send to animals in need of a transfusion. These plasma transfusions have been responsible for assisting in saving the lives of several young giraffe across the country. Since 2017, the Columbus Zoo has been able to provide plasma to assist in saving the lives of four newborn giraffe at other zoos that were in need of a transfusion to survive. The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is a longtime supporter of #giraffe conservation. We’ve pledge a portion of the proceeds raised from today’s event to be donated to the Tanzania National Strategy Plan for giraffes, which is part of AZA’s Saving Animals from Extinction (SAFE) program! Watch our Facebook Live to see the plasma draw in action as well as to see our BIG reveal that Cami and Zuri are expecting! #ColumbusZoo#pregnantgiraffe#giraffesofinstagram#loveforlongnecks#savegiraffe

We've just transferred the funds to sponsor conservation, and wildlife education
We've just transferred the funds to sponsor conservation, and wildlife education field trips, for just under 100 kids. These kids live just outside Kruger National Park, and many have never had the opportunity to see the wildlife inside the national park. This community region is heavily impacted by poachers and organized crime. We strongly believe in investing in the future for wildlife, and these kids will be the future #wildlifeguardians. This effort is in partnership with our friends at Nourish, of South Africa. #Communitybasedconservation#conservationeducation#wildlife#kids#rhino#savetherhino#savepangolin#saveelephants#savegiraffe

😰 🐴 EL ANIMAL MÁS ALTO del planeta ha vivido una disminución dramática, pues su población se ha reducido un 40 % en los últimos años. En 2016, La Unión Internacional para la Conservación de la Naturaleza (UICN) la catalogo como ‘especie vulnerable’ en la Lista Roja de animales en peligro de extinción ya que en el 2015 las jirafas cayeron por debajo de los 100.000 ejemplares. La perdida de su hábitat a causa de la deforestación, el aumento de la población, el cambio del suelo y la caza ilegal para uso de venta de pieles y consumo de carne, son las dos razones más importantes que han provocado la caída de esta especie.
