When I was in Los Angeles earlier this year it marked the second time I’ve been really close to a giraffe. I timidly fed the world famous Stanley the Giraffe who has been seen in countless commercials and now works at the Malibu Wine Safaris. Judging from his very own Instagram page, I think he gets fed a lot and people take selfies when Stanley incessantly.
Giraffes are absolutely beautiful and magical and wondrous. I am happy to have been close to them in both California and in South Africa. I also saw a giraffe in its natural habitat while driving through a Zambian nature reserve. I remember looking at it in awe and then snatching up my camera to photograph it for my memories.
I want giraffes to be around for a very long time. As we all know, giraffes’ habitat is quickly eroding in Africa and we all can do something to save them.
I searched for ways online that we can protect giraffes and came across giraffeconservation.org on Google just now. They seem to be doing amazing work. Giraffes need our support. I’m supporting them.
