The zoo will also have a special behind the scenes tour of the giraffes for a small $8.00 fee at 3pm that day! The special tour also includes a giraffe feeding! All of the special activities are included with general admission, however additional fees may apply for certain activities.
World Giraffe Day is a worldwide event that celebrates the conservation and awareness of all nine subspecies of giraffe. The Giraffe Conservation Foundation (GCF) established this important day of awareness. The GCF does vital work in research, habitat conservation and helping to protect wild populations from a variety of threats. Many people don’t realize giraffes need our help, just as much as other higher profile endangered animals. World Giraffe Day is the perfect opportunity to raise awareness.
Admission prices are as follows: Adults $14.95, Children 3-12 years old $10.95 and Senior 60+ $12.95
