SAVING THE ROTHSCHILD’S GIRAFFE

Uganda is setting the sky as the limit in saving the world’s tallest animal; Rothschild’s Giraffe. Uganda today remains the world’s eminent home to the largest population of these giraffes. It’s no surprise that sometimes it is referred to as the Ugandan Giraffe.
The Rothschild’s Giraffe is a sub-species of the Giraffa species and is also classified as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. Of the 2000 remaining species, the pearl of Africa plays host of 800 members at the Murchison Falls National park being among the only ones left surviving naturally in the wild. The others are housed within zoos and breeding centers like the Nairobi Giraffe Centre.
