Samburu National Park, Kenya
Reticulated giraffe (Giraffa reticulata) range extends across Kenya, where they are found in open grasslands, woodlands and scrublands. Giraffe are browsers, feeding on a wide variety of tree species. This promotes new forage growth, making plant resources more accessible. In their search of forage and mates, giraffe cover great distances, but increasing human population, the expansion of agricultural land, and the development of infrastructure has caused the fragmentation of their range. From a conservation aspect, this lack of long distance movement limits access to suitable forage and the natural gene flow between populations.
