Happy International Giraffe Day!⁣⁣
Today, the 21st June, is the most important day of the year for giraffe. This year, @giraffe_conservation , the only Africa-wide organisation dedicated to the conservation of giraffe, are focussing on the Twiga (giraffe) Tracker. They aim to fit 250 GPS satellite units to giraffe throughout Africa to help them understand how and where the animals move and informing their conservation efforts on the ground. This has become more important in recent years with the declining number of giraffes across the continent, leading them to now be officially classified as Endangered. ⁣⁣
