BVNA donates funds raised in support of the Giraffe Conservation Foundation

BVNA are delighted to announce that the total funds raised in support of its chosen charity for 2017/2018, the Giraffe Conservation Foundation (GCF), totalled £ 1,195.89

Stephanie Fennessy, Director of GCF said:

"The Giraffe Conservation Foundation would like to thank the veterinary nursing profession for supporting the associations fundraising activities during the year.

These funds will continue to work to secure a sustainable future for all giraffe populations in the wild.  With less than 100,000 giraffe remaining in all of Africa, after a decline of almost 40% over the past three decades, we must act now to save this iconic species from extinction. 

We are working closely with local and regional African organisations, African governments as well as international partners to ensure high priority for giraffe on national and regional conservation agendas by identifying and providing long-term conservation and management solutions for all giraffe populations. 

Thank you again for sticking your neck out for giraffe conservation in Africa. Together we can make a difference and secure a future for giraffe in the wild."
