April 2 Morning Update
This morning, keepers report increased discharge, continued lack of interest in food, full udders. April also continues to be a bit out of character. We continue to watch and wait.
Keepers feel they will be able to get the giraffes yard time today, as yard conditions have returned to safe and temperatures promise to climb from the 30s to 50s today. Perhaps that will "shake" things up!

Michele Shultz" This is so worrisome that they are all endangered. People have no idea what we have lost and are losing. I really wish and pray more people will understand before its to late and they are gone and other animals as well. Thank you again Jordan and crew for everything you have blessed us with. We are with you also and I'm so so sorry for the way some have acted. Most of us are so with you and the Park and crew."
Jody Cheek "Thank you AAP for everything you are doing to keep the public informed. You have an absolutely amazing staff and their dedication is incredible. Thank you too about the alert system. Also I just want to say to ignore the people who cannot be pleased, regardless of what you do. I know it can be difficult, especially when you all are so busy and have so much to do. Please know that the majority of us are so thankful for being able to participate in this wonderful event. It is a chance of a lifetime for us to witness a giraffe, i.e., April going through her pregnancy and the birth of her calf. Thank you from the bottom of my heart".
Yvvonne Spence "Hopefully she has Baby G today. I think she want Oliver distracted by outdoor time. She had a couple good bulging pushes around midnight and 2am. She's getting there, I know she has everyone at AAP and homes across the world glued to their screens waiting for that egg like water sack to show followed by hooves".
