Justice for Rare White Giraffes Killed by Poachers

Target: Uhuru Kenyatta, President of the Republic of Kenya

Goal: Find and imprison the poachers that killed two rare white giraffes.

Two extremely rare white giraffes, a mother and her calf, were brutally killed by poachers at a Kenyan Wildlife Sanctuary. There is now only one white giraffe remaining in Kenya.

Officials at the Ishaqbini Hirola Conservancy noticed they hadn’t seen the giraffes in a while, and eventually found their remains. They are believed to have been dead for four months. The giraffes lived a free-range life in the sanctuary. These incredibly rare creatures attracted tourism and global awe. Their unique white coloring is caused by a condition called Leucism that inhibits skin cells from producing pigmentation.

Mohammed Ahmednoor, manager of the conservancy, described the giraffes death as “a blow to tremendous steps taken by the community to conserve rare and unique species.” Giraffes have lost 40 percent of their population in just 30 years to poaching and wildlife trafficking. Though improvements have been made, Kenya still suffers from high rates of poaching, particularly for elephants and rhinos. Sign below to demand the government of Kenya find and imprison the poachers who killed these rare and important white giraffes.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Kenyatta,

A rate white giraffe and her newborn calf were both brutally killed, leaving only one white giraffe left in your nation. The death of these rare white giraffes is a true tragedy for your country and for the world. The Giraffe Conservation Foundation estimates that the number of reticulated giraffes in the world has declined by 50 percent in the last three decades. In the age of extinction, we cannot afford to lose another species.

These giraffes deserve justice. I demand that you find the poachers who committed this crime and imprison them.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
