Pink or Blue? April the Giraffe Finally Gives Birth!

April’s baby is finally here!

 

It seems the entire world wide web has been waiting for April the Giraffe to give birth to her babe since she was rumored to be in labor two months ago. Well wave your blue victory flags, because April’s male calf was born, hooves first, April 15, 2016, 9:54am EST at Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York.

Updates provided by the private zoo state mama and baby are doing just fine. On a live feed provided by Animal Adventure, we can now see the new little boy walking, attempting to feed from his mother and showing devoted interest in the young bull across the hall from his playpen. That would be Oliver, the baby calf’s father.

 

A name has not been given to the new arrival. The park is already offering the public the chance to provide suggestions by donating 1$ each to their GoFundME campaign that will partially support giraffe care in wildlife conservation and at the zoo. Six of the names will be chosen for an online selection contest. What a noble cause April and her boy are turning out to be! It is all for a good reason.

In 2016, giraffes were placed on the silent extinct list. In over three generations, giraffe populations has decreased by 30%. Based on scientific data this is not normal.

 

April’s pregnancy watch has been a huge deal in an ongoing committment to preserving the species. This baby makes April’s fourth calf, but her first for Animal Adventure Park.

 

Congratulations April!
