World Giraffe Day is an exciting annual event initiated by Giraffe Conservation Foundation to celebrate the longest-necked animal on the longest day or night (depending on which hemisphere you live!) of the year – 21 June – every year! Not only is it a worldwide celebration of these amazing and much loved animals, but an annual event to raise support, create awareness, and shed light on the challenges giraffes face in the wild. By supporting World Giraffe Day (WGD), you directly help save giraffes in Africa. With only 90,000 giraffes remaining in the wild, the time is right to act NOW!
