Throughout history humans have always had a connection, with giraffes. From the carvings of giraffes in the Nigerian Sahara 6,000 years ago to our present day efforts to protect these magnificent creatures our admiration for them has been profound. The Dabous giraffe rock art petroglyphs and other ancient depictions found across Africa are a testament to this fascination. Today we use tools like satellite tracking to study and conserve giraffes. However it’s important to make our objective clear – we must preserve these animals for future generations.
