Tajiri is Going to be Moving to North Carolina by late fall

Tajiri, the giraffe whose birth became an internet sensation in 2017, is going to be moving to North Carolina by late fall, according to the Virginia-based nonprofit Wildlife Conservation Center.

The giraffe was born on April 15, 2017, in Harpursville, New York. Tajiri is the fourth calf of the now-famous April the giraffe.

Millions were glued to their computers in the spring of 2017, as April was livestreamed in anticipation of Tajiri’s birth.

Tajiri will be starting his new family at the Carolina Wildlife Conservation Park outside of Raleigh, the WCC said. The park is a new educational facility that is currently under construction and slated to be open to the public in the spring of 2019.
