FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – The Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo is celebrating the world’s tallest animal Monday for World Giraffe Day.
World Giraffe Day is meant to raise awareness of an endangered species and show what people can do to help their habitats.
While at the zoo, guests had the chance to enjoy hands-on activities such as live feeding opportunities while learning about the giraffes that live at the zoo.
“It’s important to raise awareness because there are steps we can take to help giraffes which we mention at our event today. And they’re beautiful creatures. So we want to have engaging activities that help kids learn about giraffes and help appreciate them more,” said Tarah Zumbrun, PR Intern.
The activities were free with a zoo admission.
