Wild Nature Institute – Masai Giraffe conservation

Thursday, August 16, 2018
12 to 1 pm
Kampala Conference Room at the Sacramento Zoo
*Included with zoo admission and free for Sacramento Zoo members. No RSVP needed.

The founders of Wild Nature Institute will discuss their organization’s efforts in Masai giraffe conservation. Learn about their goal of Masai giraffe conservation science and its mission to understand where giraffes are doing well and where they are not, and why. The Wild Nature Institute is currently conducting the world’s largest individual-based study of Masai giraffes. They are using pattern-recognition software to track more than 3,000 individuals in a 1,500-square kilometer area to understand births, deaths, and movements in the fragmented Tarangire Ecosystem in northern Tanzania. So stop by Kampala Cafe to grab some lunch and learn how the Sacramento Zoo and YOU are helping to save this endangered species. See you there!
