27 Feb Giraffe birth!
We are pleased to announce the birth of a female giraffe on January 15, after 15 months of gestation. Just one month old, she is enjoying her first moments outside, after spending 4 weeks in the warm of her box. Even if she is living her first days in her vast space, there is still no question of straying too far from Hadiza, her mother! The giraffe is classified as “vulnerable” by the IUCN, International Union for Conservation of Nature. At La Barben Animal Park, we welcome Kordofan giraffes (Giraffa camelopardalis antiquorum) which are part of the 4 species of Giraffe now recognized (Northern giraffe). Its conservation in a zoo is framed by a European Breeding Program. We are very happy to welcome this beautiful birth, all the more precious in the context of an EEP.
