The Silent Extinction
Everybody knows our amazing and beautiful friends, the giraffes!
Yet no one knows the plight they endure...
Are Giraffe's Endangered?
scientifically yes . legally no. giraffes are considered vulnerable meaning they face a high risk of extinction. the causes?
Natives believe that giraffe flesh can cure AIDS/HIV and they use giraffe tails as fly-swatters (as if normal plastic swatters or rolled up newspaper isn't enough🙄🤨)
While giraffe populations in southern Africa are doing just fine, the world’s tallest animal is under severe pressure in some of its core ranges across East, Central and West Africa. ( https://www.her.ie/ )
