Based on our recent detailed assessment of giraffe numbers and their distribution in Namibia, we now estimate that there are approx. 12,000 Angolan giraffe in Namibia as well as 100 South African giraffe. Giraffe are widely distributed across the country and occur on private and communal land as well as in national parks. Learn more about our findings in our latest poster ‘Namibia’s Giraffe – A Conservation Guide’.
What exactly are the differences between giraffe species and their subspecies? Do they all look the same? If you simply want to compare giraffe coat patterns and find out where they live, have a look at our poster ‘Africa’s Giraffe – Can you spot the difference?’
While giraffe roamed widely across the African continent, their numbers have dropped and their distribution is limited and rather patchy. To find out more about giraffe, their current conservation status and distribution, check out our poster ‘Africa’s Giraffe – Conservation Status & Distribution’.
This poster summarises the most important information in giraffe conservation: their conservation and economic significance, it identifies management priorities, threats and limiting factors, and provides an overview of giraffe numbers and their distribution in Africa.
