Giraffes need our help! Many people don’t know they’re endangered, after all, they’re very good at looking after themselves. They can spot predators from miles away with their long necks and they can reach leaves and fruits which are out of reach from most grazing animals.
But you want to know a giraffe’s number one predator? Humans!
The combined impacts of habitat loss, climate change, human population growth, poaching, disease and war have threatened the giraffe population.
Our friends at Giraffe Conservation Foundation
have been working hard to help giraffes, but when it comes to conservation, they compete with other animals for awareness and funding.
When you visit the giraffes at Yorkshire Wildlife Park, you can donate to Yorkshire Wildlife Park Foundation, who work with Giraffe Conservation Foundation
to help giraffe in the wild.
