Kenya - Salah satu populasi jerapah yang paling terancam punah dievakuasi dari menguapnya danau Baringo, membuat habitat asli jerapah menjadi pulau yang terus menyusut.

An endangered Rothschild's giraffe, blindfolded to keep it calm, is floated on a custom-built rectangular barge from Longicharo Island to the eastern shores of Lake Baringo, to save it from rising lake levels that threaten its future, in Kenya Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2020. The operation conducted by wildlife organizations with the help of the local community comes after lake levels started to rise by an estimated 6 inches a day, turning the giraffe's original home into an ever-shrinking island. Seven giraffe remain on the island with two due to be moved over the next few days, and the rest in the coming months, according to Northern Rangelands Trust. (Northern Rangelands Trust via AP)
