Vulnerable Giraffes!

This week the International Union for Conservation of Nature, the keepers of the Red List of Endangered Species, declared wild African giraffes Vulnerable to Extinction.   
It makes me sad. I've always loved the gentle gangly giants. I photographed this young pair at the Cape May County Zoo, in New Jersey. Click to enlarge.

And maybe, if you have not finished shopping for holiday gifts, you might want to click here to check out how to send a giraffe adoption package from the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) -- you can shop and save giraffes at the same time.
