Giraffe Update

If you have made a trip to the zoo this year, you've no doubt seen the new Serengeti exhibit that is being constructed. This is one of our most ambitious projects and certainly one of our soon to be highlights for 2013. But if you have not been to the zoo you may have missed our exciting news:

Wildwood Wildlife Park will soon be home to two giraffes.

While we are all very excited and looking forward to their arrival - the giraffes have not arrived as yet.

The zoo where the giraffes are currently residing will not release them to our care until the little female is completely weaned from her mother.

As you can imagine, this is an uncontrolled circumstance and like all soon to be "new parents," we are having to wait until the baby is ready to make the trip to her new home.

We are projecting the timeline to be around the middle of June but please bear in mind that this is all subject to what is in the best interest of the animals.

We will post updates and new of the giraffes on our Facebook page and Twitter account.

Please Note: The photograph is a stock image of a giraffe and is not "our" giraffe. The photo of the crane sculpture is part of the new Serengeti exhibit at Wildwood Wildlife Park.
