Team translocation is up and running again! UWA (Uganda Wildlife Authority) Executive Director Mr. Sam Mwandha, Director Conservation Mr. John Makombo, Deputy Director Field operations, Mr. Charles Tumwesigye and our partners from Giraffe Conservation Foundation today flagged off the UWA giraffe translocation team to Murchison Falls National Park.

This exercise is set to begin tomorrow 7th August and will have giraffes captured in Murchison Falls and released at Kidepo Valley National Park.

This will be the second giraffe translocation to this park to boost the giraffe numbers and offer species diversity.
