Giraffe Receives Protected Species for First Time in UN History

Giraffe Receives Protected Species for First Time in UN History

Thanks to the latest United Nations Declaration recently met in Geneva, hundreds of endangered animals will now receive relative protection.

Giraffes received for the first time in history international protection under a United Nations Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species. In particular, giraffes have been recognized as vulnerable species due to their population decline of 40% in recent years. With this measure there is an expectation that their population will recover.

The Wildlife Program's business manager says this measure throws a life plank at this majestic animal that has been systematically and quietly disappearing in recent years. He thinks that the list of new protected species should have come a long way, and that it will help regulate the trade in animals.

Members of the summit agreed in the near future to protect even more species, some 500 more. Impression is that Makkou Shark, one of the oldest species on the planet, is among those species.

As if the side effects of the animal kingdom were not brought about by the systematic destruction caused by human intervention on the planet, there is also the crime of wildlife where entire animal species are threatened with total extinction on the altar of profit. The good thing is that this new agreement will legally impose the tools and services necessary to protect animals and enable any offenders to be brought to justice.

Interesting giraffe features

The giraffe is the tallest animal on the planet

Despite its height it can develop speeds of 40 kilometers per hour

Due to its high neck, it is impossible to bend to the ground without kneeling when, for example, it wants to drink water.

The giraffe sleeps only half an hour a day! He often shares this throughout the day in several short naps.

It has given us the image of a silent animal, where it makes no sound, but that is not true. Giraffes often communicate with each other, but they do so at a low frequency that is not perceptible to humans. From them, however, this sound is perceived from a great distance.

The baby of a giraffe is able to walk just one hour after giving birth!
