Posted by on Saturday, December 10, 2016

The the giraffe population has declined by nearly 40 per cent in just 30 years.

Biologists say that the tallest land animal is threatened by extinction.

Elephants are not as rare as giraffes.

Back in 1985 there were between 151,000 and 163,000 giraffes now there are just 97,562.

At one point Giraffes were probably common targets for hunters throughout Africa.

Different parts of their bodies were used for different purposes. Their meat was used for food.
