As today is , we would like to give some attention to this iconic long-necked African animal. 🦒
Giraffes, like elephants are landscape species and are endangered. According to @giraffe_conservation there are only around 97,500 (March 2018) giraffes left in the wild, and their numbers have dropped around 40% in the last 30 years. Giraffes face many of the same threats as elephants: habitat loss/destruction from growing cities and towns, hunting for bushmeat, poaching for the international trade in giraffe bone carvings and skin and, sadly, trophy hunting.
In 2016 Giraffe were up-listed to ‘Vulnerable’ on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
It would be terrible loss to our planet if this species were to go extinct.
Spread the world! 🦒
