Giraffe are among Africa’s most iconic wildlife, yet their conservation status is surprisingly less well known. In the 1980s, the total population of all giraffe species in Africa was estimated to be more than 155,000. Today, the Giraffe Conservation Foundation (GCF) estimates the population has declined nearly 30% to current numbers of 111,000 giraffe in Africa. That is approximately one giraffe to every three to four elephants currently roaming African ecosystems. To save these incredible animals and conserve their habitats, it is vital to gain a better understanding of their space use needs and required resources.
