Giraffes stage a comeback in West Africa

6 years ago39 views

Distinguished by its light coloured spots, the West African giraffe once roamed in pockets across Nigeria, Chad, Cameroon and Benin, that is until drought and hunting decimated their numbers.

In 1996, with just 50 left in the wild, conservationists in Niger launched a campaign to protect them from poachers.

And as Al Jazeera's Tarek Bazley explains, their gradual return has been helped in part by a rise in tourists.
