The Giraffe Center

February 27, 2013

The African Fund for Endangered Wildlife sponsors the giraffe rescue in Nairobi, Kenya. We visited this rescue center┬áthat mostly helps needy giraffes, but there are other animals there as well. Some of the giraffes in the photos are Eddy, Daisy, Lynn, Abraham, Kelly and Helen. Anne helped feed the giraffes and even got a big kiss from Daisy! Initially the Fund was started in 1979 as a core breeding center for the Rothschild’s giraffe, but now it extends educational services to the children of Kenya. Its mission is “To promote sustainable environmental conservation through education for the youth in Kenya.”
