Celebrating World Giraffe Day!

Copy: On World Giraffe Day (June 21) and every day, we stand tall for giraffes. Giraffes are an iconic species of Africa.

They have been going through a silent crisis, with their numbers in the wild dropping dramatically with little notice over the past few years. Threats include habitat loss, habitat degradation, habitat fragmentation, population growth and poaching.

AZA-accredited zoos, like the Phoenix Zoo, and their partners are working collectively to help save giraffe through education, scientific research, field work, public awareness and action.
