Transcript of Giraffes

Giraffes The wonderful tall creatures Habitat How humans interact/interfere with Giraffes Habitat Destruction~ There are several forms of habitat destruction. But they all basically reduce the land available for giraffes. Some land is for human development (roads and houses), and some land is for raising crops. Are They Endangered? How we can help giraffes survive Adult Giraffes can extend their tongue up to 21 inches Name Of Species Classification Name and Classification Generic: Girasfa
Scientific: Giraffa camelopardalis Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Mammalia
Order: Artiodactyla
Family: Giraffidae
Genus: Giraffa Giraffes live in woodland areas. They use grasslands only for traveling. If fresh food is available they do not need water, so you are unlikely to see them at rivers and lakes. Random Fact... Hunting~ Hunters don't hunt this specific African animal. However they do hunt other animals rather than giraffes. There fore this is not a huge source of concern. But sometimes they will hunt the giraffe. When they do, they value the giraffe for its hide and hair. They also have tough and nutritious meat. Giraffes are not necessarily an endangered species. However, there is one subspecies of giraffe that is considered endangered. It is the Rothschild's giraffe. Thankfully the Rothschild's Giraffe Project in Kenya conducts research to help this species to survive. So, we are helping them. There is not so much things we can do to help these species since they technically aren't really endangered.
(Except for the Rothschild's Giraffe)
But one thing we can always do is create awareness.
We can do this by; talking to our friends about it in a everyday conversation. That's just one good way to do it, but there are plenty of others. Here's a picture of a giraffe drinking water: How do Giraffes contribute to Biodiversity? Giraffes are plant eaters, their eating habits help spread seed of plants they have been eaten when they poop. The seed gets redistributed with some fertilizer to help it grow. They may not contribute alot, but they are less harmful than humans. Not all human activities have negative affects on giraffes. We actually protect them, because to help preserve their population we relocate them to a safe place if needed. T
