The giraffe (Giraffa) is a genus of African even-toed ungulate mammals, the tallest living terrestrial animals and the largest ruminants. The genus consists of eleven species including Giraffa camelopardalis, the type species. Seven of these species are extinct, prehistoric species known from fossils, while four are still extant. Whereas Giraffa once was thought to contain a single extant species with numerous subspecies, research into the mitochondrial and nuclear DNA of Giraffa has revealed four to six distinct extant species. The four-species taxonomic classification has the genus Giraffa composed of the species Giraffa giraffa (southern giraffe), Giraffa tippelskirchi (Masai giraffe), Giraffa reticulata (reticulated giraffe) and Giraffa camelopardalis (northern giraffe)
Giraffes are such unique creatures. There is no other creature on earth quite like them. When you think of Africa, one of the animals that you think of is the giraffe. These animals should be protected because they are not the strongest animal in the wild. They need to be watched so they don't go extinct.
Any animal that is facing extinction, especially at the hands of poachers and urbanization, should be protected at all costs. Humans and our over population and increased urban areas along with pollution has led to the extinction of more animals than ever before. We have to do more to protect endangered animals.
No matter the animal, we should always do whatever we can to stop extinction. If there is evidence that giraffes are becoming extinct, then something needs to be done to save them. Each animal is important to our ecosystem in their own way, and we need to make sure they all stay around.
Yes, more should be done to protect giraffes from extinction. More should be done to protect all species of wildlife, but giraffes are particularly special. They are easily recognizable and loved by many. Children learn about giraffes early in life and they are a main stay in our lives. We need to keep them around.
Mankind develops rapidly, and it seems that nothing can stop us.
Many species of different animals had vanished from the Earth, whereas humankind exists till today, and its development danger other Earth inhabitants. Although there were occasions where human destroyed the generation of some animal species, people did not stopped their industrial activity and did not control their impact on wildlife, on the world. That is why I think that only extinction of such popular animal may be good food for thought for each person on this Planet
