Why do they need our support?

Giraffe populations have been steadily declining because of human population growth. Since 1980, giraffe populations have decreased about 25%, going from 155,000 wild individuals to 117,000 wild individuals.

How is the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo helping?

The Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo is a proud financial supporter of the Giraffe Conservation Foundation. Money raised by the GCF goes towards their mission of raising awareness of giraffe endangerment and furthering their ongoing conservation efforts.
