Committed to Conservation
Giraffe SAFE

We're proud to stand tall with giraffes and partner with the Giraffe SAFE program to save one of Africa’s most majestic species. Through this partnership, we're committing to help conservation efforts of reticulated giraffes in Eastern Kenya.

Species Survival Program

We participate in the Masai giraffe Species Survival Plan. By sharing research and knowledge, participating institutions work together to establish guidelines that best ensure the health of captive populations, and with success, the survival of endangered species.
