Wikipedia: the giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis) is an African even-toed ungulate mammal, the tallest of all extant land-living animal species, and the largest ruminant.

In the past 15 years, the population has plummeted from 140,000 in the mid 1990s.

About 68,000 giraffe remain in the wild according to International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW). The time to act is now.

Its scattered range extends from Chad in the north to South Africa in the south, and from Niger in the west to Somalia in the east.
