Let the April baby watch parties begin! The world will be watching the Animal Adventure Park once again as the famous April the Giraffe is pregnant. Park owner Jordan Patch broke the news Wednesday, July 25th.

After thirty days of sample collection and sending specimens to a lab for testing, the analysis confirmed April is already months into her pregnancy. Her fifth calf is expected to enter the world in early Spring 2019. Guess I know what I'll be doing next Spring. Maybe this time I won't miss the big event after watching the live feed for weeks.

Last Spring millions tuned in to Animal Adventure Park’s live Giraffe Cam to watch April give birth to a healthy, male calf named Tajiri and we heard rumors April could be pregnant again during our Farm Hands tour of the Park. The rumors turned out to be true!

“At Animal Adventure Park, our top priority is preserving these beautiful, majestic creatures and increasing awareness of the threat giraffes are facing,” said Patch. “April’s prior pregnancy facilitated an immeasurable amount of education and appreciation for giraffes. We’re very proud of our captive management and propagation program and eager to continue doing all we can to help bring this species awareness and tangible results towards conservation.”

April’s fans will once again be able to follow her pregnancy journey on the Animal Adventure Park Facebook pageYouTube channel and Aprilthegiraffe.com.
