Why is Conservation Important?

Giraffe numbers are dwindling in their native habitat, and the reticulated giraffe was just recently listed as endangered. It is more important now than ever to provide opportunities for giraffes to contribute to their global population's growth. The giraffe population is decreasing primarily due to habitat loss and hunting. Therefore, facilities with giraffes in human care are doing everything possible to establish and grow family units.
