How many giraffes are left in the world?

Answer

As of 2014, there are approximately 80,000 giraffes left in Africa, according to the Giraffe Conservation Foundation. This is a huge decrease from 1999, when there were an estimated 140,000 giraffes on the continent.

Lions, crocodiles and humans are some of the main predators of the giraffe, and the young are particularly susceptible to attack by hyenas, leopards and wild dogs. Poaching and habitat loss contribute to the decline in the giraffe population in the wild.

Giraffes live in Africa in the arid savanna regions wherever there are trees. These herbivorous animals live approximately 25 years, grow to a height of 18 feet and weigh up to 3,000 pounds.
