The Gentle Giraffe is Facing a Silent Extinction

Across Africa, populations of the world’s tallest mammals are quietly, yet sharply, in decline. Giraffe numbers across the continent fell 40 per cent between 1985 and 2015, to just under 100,000 animals, according to the figures available to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). The rate of decline is much higher in central and eastern regions, with poaching, habitat destruction, and conflict the main drivers blamed for thinning herds of giraffes. In Kenya, Somalia, and Ethiopia, reticulated giraffe numbers fell 60 per cent in the three decades to 2018, the IUCN said.
