Description

West Africa's last giraffes can be found in Niger, about 50 kilometres from Niamey in the Kour¨¦ area. Only about 5-hundred remain -- and are carefully guarded by conservationists. International donors, NGOs and even community members have been roped in to protect the gentle beasts. Watchtowers have been installed so the herd's movements can be tracked around the clock. The Koure area has also been classified as a UNESCO heritage site.
