World Giraffe Day

June 21, 2017 - 09:30am

On June 21, learn about giraffes, the threats they face and how to help.

The tallest land-based mammals are declining rapidly—in the past two decades, the giraffe population in Africa has decreased by about 40%. On World Giraffe Day, learn about giraffes' unique traits and how to help protect them. Volunteers and keepers will be stationed around the giraffe habitat with games and activities about giraffe characteristics, conservation and enrichment.
