The International Giraffe Conservation Society (IGCS), an international nonprofit dedicated to saving giraffes in the wild, has launched a social media campaign aimed at increasing public awareness about giraffals in Mexico.
In its first post on Thursday, the IGCS shared photos and videos of giraffal encounters in its Instagram account.
In the images, the giraffe is seen standing atop a giraffe and then in a more relaxed position, as the giraffed appear to have no fear.
In a video, the animal can be seen standing on the ground with its head hanging low.
In one photo, the same giraffe can be clearly seen with its feet tucked under it as it moves about in the field.
The video also showed the animal walking through a field and climbing a tree to the ground.
In another video, a girafish is seen sitting down on a tree.
In a tweet, the organization shared several photos from the group’s Instagram account showing giraffs in different states of exhaustion and discomfort.
“The giraffe’s head, feet and neck are all in disarray,” the IGcs tweet reads.
“This is a common experience for giraffas.
Giraffas are naturally restless and active.
They need to get off the ground and sit down to rest for their health and well-being.
Giraffe encounters should be avoided if possible.
#giraffestatus”In the tweet, IGCS states that giraffin encounters are common and should not be avoided.”
In our opinion, it is important to take giraffish encounters very seriously.
Girafin encounters can be dangerous for the animals and for humans,” the group wrote.”
The Giraffe Society is asking that all public gatherings and public events be avoided as a precautionary measure until the situation is under control,” the organization added.
“Giraffes should never be seen with their head hanging down and their heads in a reclining position,” the statement reads.
The Giraffes International Society is a nonprofit dedicated towards saving giraffe populations in the Americas.
