What started out as a normal day of surveying endangered Rothschild’s giraffe in Murchison Falls National Park, Uganda, should become one of the most amazing field days so far – but see for yourself.

“We just wrapped up surveys this afternoon with a rather eventful day. In addition to photographing loads of giraffe, we were also fortunate enough to witness a giraffe birth. It was a pretty special occasion!”
