Description
"Long ago, Nubian giraffes roamed wild across Uganda. Over time, as people constructed roads and towns, giraffe habitat and populations shrank. By 2016, nearly all of the remaining Nubian giraffes in Uganda lived in the northern part of Muchison Falls National Park. Then a rich oil deposit was discovered there and companies made plans to start drilling, which put the giraffes at risk. The Ugandan government called on a team of scientists to find a new home site and move the giraffes. Can they do it in time to keep the giraffes safe?" -- Back cover.
Description
"After oil was discovered in Nubian giraffes' habitat, conservationists needed to move some of them across a river to safer territory. But there was no bridge and giraffes can't swim. Follow this unusual -- and successful -- rescue!"--,Provided by publisher.
