How wildlife biologists and conservationists are rescuing Rothschild’s giraffes from a shrinking island
So, What’s the Problem?
The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) identifies four main threats to giraffe populations…
Human expansion is rapidly progressing throughout giraffe habitat resulting in native habitat being degraded or converted into agriculture.
Military operations and violence in giraffe territories have destroyed the landscape and threatened herds.
Hunting for sport is still very common among giraffes. In fact, between 2006 and 2015, the US imported more than 20,000 carved giraffe bones.
Changes influenced by people and climate are altering giraffe habitat and degrading resources. This is what we are going to focus on today!
