21 June 2014 is World Giraffe Day

The first ever World Giraffe Day will be celebrated around the world on 21 June 2014 - the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere seemed the most appropriate day to celebrate the tallest animal!

GCF has taken the lead in establishing this new conservation highlight. Together with numerous partners around the world GCF has already started preparations for this day in the middle of next year. In order to spread the word a Facebook group has been established (please follow this link and like it!) and website development is well under way. 

GCF would like to use this opportunity to thank Grant Wheeler, logo designer extraordinaire, who has helped GCF design the fantastic logo for World Giraffe Day - 21 June! We really appreciate your support Grant - thanks a million!

Numerous zoos have started brainstorming on activities to mark this important milestone in giraffe conservation. Please get in touch if you want to get involved or have some inspiring ideas how to celebrate this day.

Please help us to spread the word - together we can make a real difference in giraffe conservation!
