The Calgary Zoo is showing off its new giraffe today.
Emara, a five year old Masai giraffe arrived earlier this summer from the San Diego Zoo as part of the species survival plan and now she’s ready to meet the public.
Emara was matched for breeding with the zoo’s male giraffe, Nabo.
Her arrival brings to number of giraffes at the Calgary Zoo to four, including two other females Moshi and Carrie.
Wild giraffe populations around the world have been dropping due mostly to habitat loss and poaching.
