Some time ago in the Ijara reserve, Kenya, poachers killed 2 of the world’s three white giraffes, a mother and a calf.

The predicted rising temperatures in Africa will determine a water stress on a population of 350-600 millions. The sum of factors such as droughts, the sea-leves rise, the reduced agricolture, the rainnfall changes and energy issues, will put at risk a continent itself already compromised.
