April 14th Morning Update
April is already out and enjoying the sunshine for the day. Grain intake remains moderate. Light discharge continues. Otherwise, all is normal and well – as expected. The only real drastic changes we will see from here is active labor – no much more change / development can occur.
Again – please excuse the sporadic/tardy post times this month. We are in construction/opening mode and routines are no longer routines on the April the Giraffe side of our operation.
On that note – back to work! Lots to do, and little time.
Giraffe Factoid: Numbers Game We Cannot Lose!
Estimations as of 2016, indicate that there are approximately 97,500 members of Giraffa in the wild, with around 1,144 in captivity. Conservation and preservation efforts are no joke and need your help now.

Arpil Giraffe Giving Birth – Supporters react:
Emma Ribbans: "'Star gazing' has been mentioned by Jordan previously as a possible sign of impending labour. Was this what April was doing this morning after Allysa had visited (before going outside the first time)?
She did it numerous times – similar to when she does hay showers, but without the hay or ear flicking and with some odd head twisting! Lots of pacing too.Thank you AAP, from Australia".
