Along with elephants, rhino, lions, tigers and many more species, giraffe are now officially endangered.
The IUCN has moved giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis), from ‘Least Concern’ to ‘Vulnerable’ on its Red List due to a 36-40% decline in numbers between 1985 and 2015 to just 97,562. Habitat loss and illegal hunting are significant contributors to the crisis.
Reacting to the news, Will Travers OBE, President and CEO of international wildlife charity, Born Free Foundation, said: “Giraffe now join the list of iconic wild animals threatened as a result of human activities. How many more must be pushed to the brink before we start taking responsibility and investing in our natural heritage for the sake of all wildlife and future generations?”
Giraffe are also a target species for trophy hunters, adding yet another pressure to an already fragile species.
