Woburn Safari Park to host Giraffe Charity Weekend

About

On Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd June, the dedicated team of giraffe keepers in Bedfordshire are putting together a fun giraffe-themed event weekend, in aid of the Kordofan Giraffe Project - research led by Dominque Rhoades a former keeper at Woburn Safari Park.

Visitors will be invited to head to the Safari Restaurant to join in the giraffe-themed fun activities and pick up some raffle tickets for a chance to win some fantastic prizes.

There will also be the chance to meet Woburn's Rothschild's giraffe herd on a special trip in a VIP Land Rover. For just £25 per person visitors can spend 30 minutes on a mini guided tour in the nine acre giraffe reserve with all proceeds going to the Kordofan Giraffe Project.

World Giraffe Day takes place on Friday 21st June and is an exciting initiative of the Giraffe Conservation Foundation (https://giraffeconservation.org/) to celebrate the longest-necked animal on the longest day of the year!
It is estimated that there are only approximately 111,000 giraffe remaining in all of Africa. Kordofan Giraffe are a critically endangered subspecies of the Northern giraffe and it is thought to be less than 2,000 of them left in the world.
