Giraffes are one of the most majestic and beloved safari animals on our great planet, yet they are slipping away into a silent extinction.  For the first time in history, giraffes have been listed as vulnerable due to  habitat destruction and poaching.

 

This oil painting is of a Masai Giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis tippelskirchi) which inhabits the tropical savannas of Kenya, Somalia, Ethiopia, and Tanzania.
