TIME: 10:00 am - 03:00 pm
Visit Franklin Park Zoo on Saturday, June 24 to celebrate the fourth annual World Giraffe Day! Over the past 15 years, giraffe numbers have steadily declined in the wild from 140,000 to an estimated 90,000 today. This worldwide event is meant to raise support, create awareness and provide a deeper understanding of the challenges that these animals face in the wild. There will also be activities and zookeeper encounters throughout the day.
