The Greenville Zoo will host Dr. Francois Deacon, a wildlife habitat expert whose research is focused on giraffe in their natural habitat. Dr. Deacon will present his unique field research project on giraffe that involves their immobilization and collection of biological samples critical for giraffe conservation. For the study, he developed a head harness equipped with a satellite GPS device that led to the collection of data and the description of behavior that has never before been documented. He will also talk about species’ conservation, including the giraffe’s natural history and endangered status.
