Why are giraffes important to the environment?

Giraffe’s are vital to keeping ecosystems in balance. They eat the browse that others cannot reach, which promotes growth of forage and opens up areas for themselves and other smaller browsers to make use of. Importantly this means that by protecting Africa’s giraffes, we are protecting other species too.

Why should giraffes be saved?

Support sustainable agriculture and settlement practices near giraffe habitats. Reforest key areas with acacia trees that provide giraffes’ main food source. Stop the poaching of giraffes for their tails, considered status symbols. Solve hunger in areas like Sudan where impoverished villagers eat giraffe meat.

Will giraffes go extinct?

Legally, not yet. Giraffes are in serious trouble. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the gold standard for assessing endangerment, has found that giraffes are “vulnerable,” meaning they face a “high risk” of extinction in the wild. And for some of the nine subspecies, this risk is imminent.

Which animal blood is white?

Answer. Insects have clear or whitish blood, more properly called hemolymph. It carries nutrients and wastes, and circulates non-specific immune cells, but has no red blood cells and very little to do with gas exchange. Some insects like beetles and cockroaches have yellowish or white like colorless blood.
