Today, June 21st, is the longest day of the year--perfect for celebrating the longest-necked (and tallest) mammal in the world. It's World Giraffe Day! Sadly, giraffes are quickly disappearing from our planet is what is called a "silent extinction."
Are you looking for a way to help? You can help researchers in Kenya count, identify, and track giraffes by reviewing photos taken from trail cameras. This is a great project for kids! To learn more, visit Wildwatch Kenya.
