Fighting Extinction of Kordofan giraffes

There are believed to be less than 27 Kordofan giraffes remaining in Bénoué National Park, Cameroon.

Without intervention, poaching of just two Kordofan giraffe per year could result in extinction of the population in just 15 years.

But together we can save this amazing species from extinction.

Bristol Zoological Society work alongside communities in Cameroon to help combat poaching, and link together wildlife corridors.

How can you help?

You can join our fight to save wildlife and habitats under threat by supporting our Fighting Extinction Appeal.

Our appeal aims to raise the vital funds we need to support our teams who are working to save wildlife and their habitats, both here in the UK and around the world.

From breeding threatened red panda, to funding camera traps and rangers protecting giraffe in Cameroon, your support will help protect irreplaceable wildlife.

As a charity, we rely on donations to give threatened species a chance of survival, through conservation and education projects, and from working alongside local communities.

Your donation can have a big impact.

£5 could help train local guides to collect data on Madagascar’s threatened lemur species, just like Haja and Olanna the blue-eyed black lemur pair at Bristol Zoo Project. This work is crucial to help save these amazing animals from extinction.

£10 could plant a tree in Madagascar or the UK, helping to connect and rebuild vital damaged habitats, providing safe spaces and green corridors for critically endangered animals.

£25 could provide one of our Endangered adult lowland gorillas with fruit and veg for one day. Providing the best care for the animals at Bristol Zoo Project is critical for their well-being, from their diet to habitats and engagement activities.

Donations to this appeal are not restricted to conservation of specific species, so you can be sure your donation is going where it is most needed, ensuring the best possible outcome for the wildlife we care for in the UK and around the world.

Thank you for everything you do for the animals you love – every £1 donated really does make a difference.
