The contest is over! The names have been chosen!
Less than five months ago Global Wildlife Center welcomed two baby Reticulated Giraffes to our family of nine. Kameel gave birth to her thirteenth calf, a baby girl on July 8, 2012. Zira followed with her fifth calf a few weeks later. Her baby boy was born on July 25, 2012.
Soon after, the Global Wildlife Board of Directors began a contest for our visitors and the Global Wildlife Members to enter a name for the baby giraffes. The names were chosen on December 15, 2012. Hundreds of names were submitted from our visitors.
“Allie” took first place for Kameel’s baby girl and “Brees” for Zira’s baby boy! The Global Wildlife Center would like to thank all of our dedicated visitors for your help in naming our new additions to the giraffe family. Allie and Brees have been seen prancing around the wagons and eating from countless visitors on tour. Call and book your private tour today to get one-on-one with Allie and Brees!
