This population is found in the southwestern part of the country in the transition zone of the Biosphere Reserve of Niger's Regional Park W (central area of Kouré and dallol Bosso) and in a more northern area, located near Fandou and Dingazi, near Ouallam. These giraffes live in a highly anthropized environment and are increasingly subject to anthropogenic pressures due to the increasing demand for natural resources from local populations.
This led the Nigerien authorities to develop a giraffe conservation strategy through several meetings, including those in October 2015, which approved the translocation of a group of giraffes from the Kouré area to the Gadabedji Wildlife Reserve. Sahara Conservation set up the ecological monitoring system in Gadabedji Wildlife Area initially with the Pan Sahara Wildlife Survey PSWS project, with a first mission in March 2010, then in a second phase as part of the Niger Wildlife Corridor project with a mission in September 2014. Since then, Sahara Conservation has supported the Nigerien authorities and in particular the management unit of the Gadabedji reserve in ecological monitoring activities.
