- In order to keep poachers at bay, the world’s only known White Giraffe was fitted with GPS tracking device in north east Kenya.
- The Giraffe is white in colour due to a rare genetic condition called Leucism. Leucism is loss of pigmentation.
- The tracking device will provide hourly update about the whereabouts of the Giraffe.
- This will help to keep the animal safe from poachers. The White Giraffe was first spotted in 2016. The mother and calf had died.
