NEWS talk by Dr Julian Fennessy and Dr Michael Brown (Giraffe Conservation Foundation):
How to create a movement
On the shortest day of the year, we will celebrate the tallest animal on Earth. The Giraffe Conservation Foundation is a Namibian-based conservation NGO working across 19 African countries to secure a future for giraffes in the wild. The GCF team will delve into the various programmes and initiatives that they have supported and/or implemented, and how building strong collaborative partnerships leading to direct conservation actions has resulted in giraffe numbers increasing and their range expanding.
Dr Julian Fennessy is the Director at the Giraffe Conservation Foundation, Adjunct Assoc. Prof. at University College Dublin, Ireland, and founder of the IUCN SSS Giraffe & Okapi Specialist Group.
Dr Michael Brown is the Conservation Science Coordinator at the Giraffe Conservation Foundation, a Fellow at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute and a member of the IUCN SSS Giraffe & Okapi Specialist Group.
