CBS 58 The main cause of population decline for reticulated giraffe is poaching, human population growth, habitat loss, habitat fragmentation and habitat degradation. Amy Toman, Birmingham Zoo Trails of Africa Zoo Keeper, said she has enjoyed working with Griffin at the Birmingham Zoo as well as working with giraffe in the wild. “Sharing my direct experience in the field studying giraffes with guests allows me to inspire them to take action to conserve giraffe populations in the wild,” she said. “Traveling to Namibia for my PiCA grant gave me the opportunity to work alongside highly esteemed professionals in giraffe conservation in the field and was a tremendous learning experience.

I enjoyed being able to bring back this knowledge to help with my care of Griffin and the Zoo’s other giraffe.” The zoo said it is inviting visitors to see Griffin before he moves in October and that the zoo family will miss him but is excited for him to join other giraffe.
