The Reticulated Giraffe Project is working to arrest and reverse the current population decline. It does so by coordinating the efforts of a growing network of contributors, who in different ways provide information, experience, effort and expertise. All are motivated by a shared desire to protect reticulated giraffes and to prevent their being known to future generations only through photographs and film. This common purpose unites villagers in the troubled border regions to the east, camel herders in the northern desert, children in the slums of Nairobi and tribal elders who remember the days when giraffes were still abundant.
