A few weeks ago I posted an essay called Two of My Favorite Things. One was Autumn and the other one was giraffes. (See link below.)
My friend Coll reads my website and knows I love giraffes. A few days ago she sent me two articles on giraffes that appeared in the New York Times that are too important not to share. Here are the links.
The photos in this posting are also from the articles.
“Giraffes, Towering and Otherworldly, are Vunerable to Extinction” by Patrick Healy
“Our Understanding of Giraffes Does Not Measure Up” by Natalie Angier
I am hoping to learn more about organizations that are committed to helping to keep giraffes from becoming extinct and will keep you posted. I cannot imagine my world without giraffes!
P.S. Thanx to Coll for these alerts!
P.P.S. I amposting this under Health Matters, because I consider this an issue under Healthy Planet.
