There's only one white giraffe left in the world, and he's living in Eastern Kenya. But the world has only known that such a creature exists since March 2016, two months after a supposed sighting in Tanzania. Poachers killed two relatives of the last white giraffe however, and they were the only known giraffe's to share such a unique color. But now that the last white giraffe has been identified, conservation efforts are being made. He suffers from a rare genetic skin condition called leucism, which results in an absence of skin pigmentation. But it's truly beautiful to behold his bright white body, faded patches, and reddish mane.
In the 21st century, it seems like the world's coral reefs just can't catch a break. Not only do they have to contend with the direct threat of declining biodiversity due to climate change and pollution, but they also face a threat on another front: being overrun by seaweed. But scientists have recently published compelling research that shows that unleashing armies of crabs on the coral reefs might be the solution.
In October 2020, scientists announced that they found a new coral reef just off the northern coast of Australia. It's close in location to the Great Barrier Reef. And it's massive: it's taller than the Empire State Building. Read on to find out what experts say about this new reef and why it's important for the world's biodiversity.
Finally, there's good news out there in the natural world. Wildlife conservationist organization WWF have revealed that tiger populations around the world are rising.

We hit an all-time low 10 years ago, with the estimation of there being only 3,200 tigers left across the 13 countries they are known to reside in. Read on to find out about how they managed to turn that all around.
