Join Us to Celebrate
World Giraffe Day at the Zoo
Love giraffes? Then you'll want to be at the San Diego Zoo on Wednesday, June 21, 2017 for World Giraffe Day! We'll be paying tribute to these iconic African animals from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., with a full day of giraffe-themed activities for the tall and the small. Get your face painted like a giraffe, participate in creating a giraffe mural, and join Dr. Zoolittle on a wacky giraffe-tracking escapade. Meet and have your photo taken with the larger-than-life giraffe puppets, and have a chance to feed our giraffes at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Discover what's a tall tale and what's the truth about giraffes, during giraffe keeper talks at 9:45 a.m. and 12:45 p.m., and talks with a giraffe conservation researcher at 10:45 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. You can even take a behind-the-scenes tour of the Giraffe Barn between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Come join us at the Zoo to immerse yourself in the world of the "towers of the savanna."
