Citizen science project launched to help the world’s giraffes
The Giraffe Conservation Foundation (GCF) with the support of the Polytechnic of Namibia has launched a project to develop an online citizen science platform for giraffes.
GiraffeSpotter.org is an easy to use web-based application that allows people to upload their photos of giraffes they have seen, together with the location where the image was taken and any other valuable information they can supply to help in conservation efforts, such as herd size, sex and age class of the giraffe.
With the help of GiraffeSpotter.org, GCF will be able to improve its understanding of giraffe ranges, distribution, numbers and ultimately the various species of giraffes’ conservation status across Africa.
At the same time, the charity hopes that the project will also engage people and raise awareness of the plight of giraffes in the wild.
15 years ago there were 140,000 giraffes in Africa. Today there are 80,000: here.
