Giraffes – the forgotten megafauna – Conservationists are putting renewed energy into saving the giraffe, whose population has plummeted by 40 percent in just 16 years… there are just 80 thousand left. This rapid loss has prompted the creation of the Giraffe Conservation Foundation – headed by long time giraffe conservationist Dr Julian Fennessy who says giraffes are the forgotten megafauna, and are far more fascinating and complex than most people realise.
