Abstract

The Nubian Giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis) is a large herbivore that resides in the African savanna. Due to habitat loss, habitat fragmentation, habitat degradation, poaching, and human population growth, this species has been declining. The current estimate of Nubian giraffes is 2,645. Conservation efforts include relocating the giraffes to wildlife reserves and creating National Strategies/Action Plans in which countries in Africa are enlightened on how to assess threats, limit resources, and monitor the species. My poster will investigate which conservation plan works best and what other methods may help in saving this species.
