Forced from home: the humans and animals under threat – in pictures

Helen has a small plot of land where she tries to farm maize, but because of the lack of rainfall and dried up wells, her crops have repeatedly died. As a result, she has little food and lives in poverty. Sky, a southern African giraffe, is four years old. She came from a farm south of Harare. The original wildlife there was almost wiped out by new settlers, leaving just two giraffes. As of 2021, there are fewer than 30,000 southern African giraffes remaining in the wild. In Zimbabwe, giraffes are not a protected species. Photographed at Wild Is Life, Zimbabwe
