Somali (reticulated) giraffe populations have declined by 50% in the last 30 years. With less than 16,000 left, they are listed as an Endangered species. Today these giraffe are largely restricted to the northern Kenya Rangelands, and a small number in southern Somalia and Ethiopia. 95% of their range is outside of formal protected areas.
Save Giraffes Now has partnered with the community-led Somali Giraffe Project to work across unprotected community lands in remote northeastern Kenya to save these giraffe. This effort includes enabling anti-poaching rangers, scouts, and patrols, snare removal, de-snaring animals that are caught, reducing human-giraffe conflict as well gathering vital information on giraffe population and movements.
