A conservation group has fitted 14 Southern giraffes in Zimbabwe with GPS tracking devices at the Hwange National Park.
The devices are solar-powered and will allow conservationists at the Giraffe Conservation Foundation to follow the movements of the mammals online.
The tagging was the first of its kind at the park.
“Gaining a better understanding of giraffe and their movements in this landscape is the first step in their protection,” Zimparks ecologist Daphine Madhlamoto is quoted as saying.
