The world’s only known white giraffe has been fitted with a GPS tracking device.

The GPS is to keep poachers at bay in north-east Kenya.

The white giraffe has a rare genetic condition called leucism. This causes the loss of skin pigmentation.

He is thought to be the last of his kind because poachers killed two of his family members in March.

Rangers fear the giraffe could suffer the same fate as his relatives.

  1. Hi I thought this was quite interesting so I have given you these questions. Is it a girl or a boy? And does he or she have a name if he or she does not can I name it?
