And what’s the #1 predator to giraffe? People! Human inhabitants development, habitat loss from human actions, poaching, unlawful commerce, civil unrest, and local weather change are inflicting at present’s 40% decline in giraffe populations. As we speak, giraffes are listed as susceptible to extinction on the IUCN Crimson Checklist of Threatened Species. And it isn’t simply giraffe. People are threatening all life on Planet Earth, our life help system, with a million plant and animal species now liable to extinction. Pressing motion is required this decade to reverse the pattern and keep away from a mass extinction occasion. Each species, from giraffe to ticks, has a task to play within the tapestry of interconnected life. If we don’t defend species by defending their final wild houses; if we proceed over-consuming and losing pure sources; and if we don’t sluggish (and finally reverse) local weather change, then this tapestry will collapse, thread by thread.
Happily nature is resilient. We are able to restore and re-wild locations we have now destroyed and degraded. We’ve proven it’s attainable at Ukuwela, and this little calf is proof of what’s attainable. Threatened species may be given a second likelihood. And there’s a rising variety of people who find themselves turning hope into motion to combat for the survival of wildlife and their wild locations. And as Jane Goodall says, “We should all be a part of that combat earlier than it’s too late.”
Be part of us on this hopeful journey to re-wild our world collectively.
