World Giraffe Day

Central Florida Zoo map

Description:

Stop by the Zoo to spend time with the world's tallest land animals!

Join us as we celebrate World Giraffe Day! This worldwide celebration of these amazing and much loved animals helps to raise awareness and shed light on the challenges giraffes face in the wild.

In late 2016, IUCN released new information that now lists the giraffe as a species vulnerable to extinction. By supporting World Giraffe Day you can help to support giraffe conservation efforts in the wild that will ultimately help secure the future of these remarkable animals in Africa. Enjoy games, crafts, a chance to get face-to-face with a giraffe at the Zoo through our Giraffe Feeding Experience. 

This event is included in general Zoo admission; additional fees may apply for certain activities.
