The Ishaqbini Hirola Conservancy Community Survey said in a statement on Tuesday that the GPS tracking device, secured to the animal’s head, would provide an hour-long update of his location.
Rangers will be able to track giraffe movements in a conservation area located in Garissa County, eastern Kenya.
Ahmed Noor, manager of the Ishaqbini Hirola Community Conservation Area, said: “The giraffe breeding grounds have been blessed with good rains in the past and good nutrients for the future of white males.”
Noor thanked Kenya Wildlife Services, Save Giraffes Now and the Northern Rangelands Trust (NRT) for helping to protect the wildlife.
“Our mission is to work with the community, help them [to] Antony Wandera, NRT’s Senior Wildlife Supervisor, said: “They are resilient, secure their livelihoods and protect unique wildlife like the known white wildlife.
The male giraffe has a rare genetic trait called leucism, which results in the loss of pigment in some animals and makes it easier for wild hunters to live in arid forests. Unlike the marine world, animals with leucism continue to produce dark pigment in its soft tissue, implying that the giraffe’s eyes are dark.
In March, the remains of two living white animals that lived in Kenya’s wildlife sanctuary were found in a state of disrepair, killed by hunters.
The White House was the first woman to be discovered, along with her calf, in 2017. A second buffalo followed, and a family of three lived independently within the grounds of the temple, much to the delight of tourists from around the world.
Tourists came to see the family of three, stretching from behind a tree. The video of the walls being uploaded to YouTube has been viewed more than half a million times. They are featured by USA Today, The Guardian, Inside Edition, and National Geographic, among other retailers.
