GIRAFFE CAM: Baby giraffe calf takes his first wobbly steps

HARPURSVILLE, N.Y. — After nearly two months of anticipation, the wait is finally over!

On Saturday, April 15, April gave birth to her long-awaited calf in front of more than a million viewers watching via the Animal Adventure Park livestream.

The newborn calf is April’s fourth but the park’s first giraffe calf.

It’s only been two days since he was born, but the calf is already trying to take his first wobbly steps. Check out the cute video below!


In case you missed the live birth or just wanted to watch it all again, check out the video below!

Now, the park is asking for your help naming the baby calf.

Here’s how you can do that:

  1. Click here to access the contest.
  2. Vote for as many names as you’d like (votes are $1 each, minimum of 5 required).
  3. You have 10 days to vote.
  4. Officials will pick the top 10 names, and another contest will follow. That contest will run another 5 days or so and the winner will be announced.

The funds from the naming contest will be used for giraffe conservation efforts, Ava’s Little Heroes program, and the Animal Adventure Park.

You can still watch the giraffe cam live to check in on April. Keepers say she’s recovered from Saturday’s delivery and is “eating everything in sight.”
