Human-Giraffe Conflict

Human population growth and change in land-use are some of the leading causes of giraffe habitat loss and fragmentation in our region. Giraffe corridors to water points along the rivers tana and around swamps have been converted to agricultural areas that deny giraffe access to the critical.

Similarly, the Giraffes have also developed a taste for certain farm produce such as mangoes thus leading to constant conflict between the farmers and giraffes.  The resulting interaction has led to the loss of property and the giraffe population. We are currently seeking a lasting solution to this challenge.
