WINSTON, Ore-- Wildlife Safari is celebrating the birth of a third giraffe calf this weekend.
There are photos of her in the video above. You can meet her starting today. The calf is already five feet and ten inches tall. She was born on May 29th. Her name has not been announced yet. Wildlife Safari says it will announce her name soon.
“By working with and researching giraffes in captivity, we better understand the challenges facing giraffes in the wild, whose populations are declining at an alarming rate,” said Dan Brands, the park’s general curator,“ and by having giraffes on display at Wildlife Safari, or in other zoos across the country, the goal is to make a personal connection between people and giraffes to inspire a commitment to that giraffe’s cousin in the wild.”
