Are you planning on visiting the Zoo without an education program? Do you have questions about the giraffes, orangutans or toucans? On Tuesdays at 10:30 am & 12:30 pm you will find a representative of the Zoo’s Education Department at select exhibits answering any questions you might have. Open to the general public.
World Giraffe Day is an exciting initiative of the Giraffe Conservation Foundation (GCF) to celebrate the longest-necked animal on the longest day or night (depending on which hemisphere you live!) of the year - 21 June - every year! Not only is it a worldwide celebration of these much loved animals, but an annual event to raise awareness and shed light on the challenges they face in the wild.
