Care for Karamoja is a community-based sustainability project based in Karamoja, a region in the northeastern corner of Uganda. Karamoja is home to about 60 endangered Rothschild's giraffes and over 785,000 food insecure people. Care for Karamoja is working with several partners, including Uganda Wildlife Education Centre, to implement a program to instruct local farmers in the sustainable, captive breeding of ostriches. This program will reduce poaching pressure on giraffes and ostriches, plus improve the lives of people by providing: a food source, diversified incomes, employment, and valuable training in husbandry and business skills that can be utilized beyond the scope of this project.
