Giraffes: Africa’s Gentle Giants – 30 Sep & 1 Oct

A Premiere Screening of Giraffes: Africa’s Gentle Giants

Everyone loves giraffes, but what do we really know about them? The new documentary Giraffes: Africa’s Gentle Giants,  highlights the work of the Giraffe Conservation Foundation and their partners in Ethiopia, Namibia and Uganda in an effort to better understand what is happening with the dwindling giraffe populations across Africa and how to curb this alarming trend.

Dr Julian Fennessy starts to reveal their secrets – the most important being that they are disappearing. In an urgent and daring mission, with adetermined Ugandan team, he plans to round up 20 of the world’s rarest giraffe to take across and beyond the mighty Nile River. The stakes are high, but if they succeed the reward will be a brighter future for an animal we have somehow overlooked.

Join 99FM and Amarula for the Namibian premiere of Giraffes: Africa’s Gentle Giants. The film is a BBC-Natural World & PBS/WNET co-production, and is narrated by the legendary David Attenborough.
