Great Zebra and Giraffe Count is a huge success

As the Kenya main news channel said, the first day of the Great Zebra and Giraffe Count was a huge success. From families on a weekend outing to the US ambassador to Kenya, 24 teams came out to Nairobi National Park today to take pictures of zebras and giraffes, to participate in the Great Zebra Count, and to have fun! What a great day it was! We had people who came for the first time to the Park because they heard about the event. And there were others that came to the park to spend the day and found out about the Count at the gate. But everybody participated, contributed, counted. And got very excited when they got the results of the processed images.

Big shout out to WildlifeDirect, KWS and StandUp ShoutOut for organizing the event!
