BABY GIRAFFE



We’re expecting a baby giraffe this spring!


We have some very exciting news! Our 12-year-old giraffe Olivia is expecting her second baby this spring. Olivia's birth window is mid-March into late April. This baby giraffe will mark the first offspring between Olivia and 6-year-old Dave. As part of our birth plan, the animal care and veterinary staff will increase Olivia's diet as needed and do regular veterinary check-ups leading up to the birth.

BUNNY BOUNCE



Easter Baskets for the Animals

Saturday, April 20, 2019
9:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.


Hop, skip and jump to Woodland Park Zoo for the 18th annual Bunny Bounce, featuring amazing egg hunts for children ages 1–8, crafts, bunny encounters and eggs-citing zoo programs throughout the day. Space may be limited. Each egg hunt is open on a first-come, first-served basis. Orangutans, lemurs, grizzlies, and more nibble on specially made Easter baskets lined with flowers, berries and other favorite treats. The special treats are part of the zoo’s excellent animal care program to help enrich the lives of the zoo’s animals. The safe activities help encourage natural animal behavior, keep animals mentally and physically stimulated and provide extraordinary experiences for zoo visitors.
