An NBC News report says Giraffe numbers are dwindling across Africa because of poaching and habitat loss caused by human population growth and it's happening largely unnoticed.
"It’s a silent extinction,” Dr. Julian Fennessy, Executive Director of the Namibian-based Giraffe Conservation Research group and a leading wildlife scientist with 16 years of experience, told ABC News.
