Giraffes: Africa's Gentle Giants

Everyone loves giraffes, but what do we really know about them? Dr Julian Fennessy has spent his life researching giraffes and has made a terrible discovery: they’re disappearing. This film reveals new discoveries in giraffe biology and follows an unprecedented rescue mission. Julian has joined an intrepid Ugandan team, their plan is to catch twenty of the world's rarest wild giraffe and take them 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've somehow overlooked.
