Namibia is one of the countries in Africa currently experiencing an increase in the giraffe population. As the first African country to incorporate protection of the environment into its constitution, 40% of Namibia’s land is sustainably managed in protected areas, communal and freehold conservancies, community forests, and tourism concessions. The African giraffe is a biological anomaly. They only have to drink every couple of days, their hearts are two feet long and weigh up to 25lbs and they have the same number of neck vertebrae as a human spine. They can run up to 35 mph if they’re feeling threatened and a swift kick can be deadly if you get too close.
