RECaP's own Arthur Muneza will be part of a BBC documentary featuring giraffe conservation research. The documentary, narrated by David Attenborough, follows Drs. Julian and Steph Fennessy, Co-Directors of the Giraffe Conservation Foundation, over the course of a year as they work to save giraffes across Sub-Saharan Africa. A big part of the documentary involves the giraffe translocation project (Operation Twiga) in Murchison Falls National Park Uganda on which Arthur contributed in January of 2016. It should be an excellent documentary. Check out the trailers and BBC site here.
