Saving Animals From Extinction
AZA SAFE – Saving Animals From Extinction – is a commitment by the accredited zoos and aquariums to harness our collective resources, focus on specific endangered species, and save them from extinction by restoring healthy populations in the wild. SAFE combines the power of zoo & aquarium visitors with the resources and collective expertise of zoos and aquariums accredited by the Association of Zoos & Aquariums and partners to save animals from extinction. Together we are working on saving the most vulnerable wildlife species from extinction and protecting them for future generations. Help Save Species
The Giraffe Feeding Experience is not guaranteed to be open daily, due to lack of staff/volunteers. We do our best to offer the Feeding Experience whenever possible, typically from 10:30am to 1:15pm, but we cannot currently guarantee those hours every day.
Please note: Face coverings are required to approach the giraffe feeding platform and to feed the giraffes.
