World Giraffe Day

June 21, 2014 - 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Celebrate giraffes and learn more about these long-necked giants on the longest day of the year. Festivities will include children’s crafts, giraffe bio facts you can touch, opportunities to meet the giraffe keepers, giraffe paintings, and more!

Populations of giraffes in the wild have declined 40% within the last 10 years. Giraffes are a very important species to their habitat and the other species of animals that coexist with them. All donations will go to support the Giraffe Conservation Foundation.

Event: 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. next to the giraffe habitat
11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. – Giraffe meet the keeper talks
