Photo by @amivitale. Today, on Endangered Species Day I urge you to get involved and learn how to help preserve iconic species like the reticulated giraffe for future generations. Please check out @newbig5project, a celebration of wildlife and a call for action I'm proud to be a part of. Right now visit their website newbig5.com to vote on the new big 5 of wildlife photography. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here, @sararacamp wildlife keeper Lekupania offers an orphaned baby reticulated giraffe a snack. This giraffe was rehabilitated and returned to the wild, as a number of others have done before him. Today, reticulated giraffes number fewer than 16,000 individuals and total giraffe populations across Africa have dropped 40 percent in three decades. Scientists are now undertaking major studies to better understand why giraffe are disappearing and what can be done to stop it.
