It is a sad fact that only 1,500 Thornicroft's giraffe remain in the wild and these majestic, graceful giants are only found in the South Luangwa in Zambia.
For the Northern giraffe the situation is dire with only 2,000 surviving in war ravaged countries, a decline of more than 80% in the last 3 decades, therefore the IUCN status is Critically Endangered.
In 2018 it was estimated there was only 650 Nubian giraffe in the wild, which has put them on the IUCN Critically Endangered Red list.
