World's Only White Giraffe Fitted With GPS To Deter Poachers
The world’s only known white giraffe has been fitted with a GPS tracking device to keep poachers at bay in North-East Kenya. Rangers can now monitor the lone male giraffe’s movements around the clock to keep him away from poachers.
The white giraffe has a scarce genetic condition, which causes the loss of pigmentation in his skin. He is known to be the last of his kind after poachers killed two of his family members last March. Rangers in North-East Kenya fear the giraffe could suffer the same fate as his relatives.
