Educating children and teachers
There is a great need to both develop and promote educational programs to increase knowledge among locals for the benefit of the Reticulated Giraffes. Kolmården Foundation funds a project branching from a collaboration between San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance (SDWA) and Giraffe Conservation Foundation (GCF). The project is directed towards conservation education regarding Meru national park in Kenya with the aim to engage both younger school children and teachers from different schools.
Through this, school children along with their teachers learn about Reticulated Giraffes and the most important threats which Kenya and the world are facing today, including climate change and loss of habitats.
