It's World Giraffe Day on 21 June each year and it's the perfect opportunity to celebrate our giraffes at London Zoo!
London Zoo is home to giraffes Molly, Maggie and Nuru! Giraffes are the world's tallest land mammal, but how much do you know about them? Our World Giraffe Day activities have passed for 2023, but we can celebrate them every day of the year! Join us at London Zoo to learn all about their incredible adaptations, the threats giraffes are sadly facing in the wild, and ZSL's conservation work in Africa.
Under-3's and ZSL Members enter the Zoo for free.
Reticulated giraffes (giraffa reticulata) are increasingly threatened by habitat loss, hunting and human/wildlife conflict. Scientists and conservationists from ZSL - the conservation charity behind London and Whipsnade Zoos – work with local communities in Africa to build stronger, sustainable relationships between people and wildlife.
