And We Thought We Needed to Get Some Sun…

White Giraffe

In a bit of news that made lazy cheetahs and lions everywhere rejoice, Charles Foley of the Wildlife Conservation Society has confirmed reports of a white giraffe in Tanzania’s Tarangire National Park.

“Despite intensive searching, I never saw the giraffe,” recalls Foley. “And by 1994, the sightings stopped coming in, so I assumed it had died, either at the hand of man or beast. I never stopped looking though.”

Twelve years later, Foley was rewarded for his search. While conducting an aerial survey of the park’s sub-population of elephants, a distant white reflection caught his eye. “I looked…blinked…looked again… and it was still there,” said Foley.
