Stand Tall with the Giraffe on World Giraffe Day

Fort Wayne IN – The Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo invites guests to learn about giraffe and their care through fun, hands-on activities on Monday, June 21 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

World Giraffe Day encourages Zoo guests to learn about and celebrate giraffe and their important place in the animal kingdom.

“World Giraffe Day celebrates an iconic species that almost everyone is familiar with,” says African Journey/Indonesian Rain Forest Curator, Amber Eagleson. “It not only celebrates but helps bring awareness to the conservation and care of giraffe around the world.”

World Giraffe Day Celebration at the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo will feature immersive, family friendly stations throughout Central Zoo about our giraffe tower.

create a personal experience between guests and these animals that lasts.”
