Wild Nature Institute scientists published a new paper in the Journal of Mammalogy this week that refines methods for counting giraffe and monitoring their populations in Africa. The paper compares three different methods for surveying giraffe and makes recommendations for improving the precision of future estimates. Dr. Derek Lee, Principal Scientist at Wild Nature Institute and lead author of the study said: "Collecting reliable data is the critically important first step to making good decisions that conserve giraffe and other wildlife populations. This paper will inform giraffe research across the continent and will likely reveal some surprises about giraffe populations."
