Flamingo Land need your help to name the new baby Giraffe

Our baby is a little girl, and we would like you to come up with a lovely name for her. Her Dad is called George, and her Mum Lizzy, and she is the sixth member of our Rothschild herd.

Please email your suggestions to baby@flamingoland.co.uk before 31st March 2017, and include why you have suggested this, along with your own name. Our Zoo Manager will then select the name which he thinks best suits her.

Our lucky winner will not only have the privilege of knowing they named our giraffe, but will also receive a family pass for 4 to visit during our 2017 main season (1st April – 29th October). The winner can also enjoy a private Giraffe Encounter where they will get to feed our giraffe herd and see the baby at close quarters.

We look forward to receiving your ideas!

“The arrival of our giraffe calf was a very special day for the entire Flamingo Land team, especially the keepers who have cared for mother Lizzy during her pregnancy,” said Ross Snipp Zoo Manager Flamingo Land Resort Yorkshire. “We were proud to enjoy the safe arrival of our giraffe calf and we are very much looking forward to seeing her grow and develop under our care and guidance.”

Giraffes as a species are listed as Vulnerable, with an estimated 1,600 Rothschild sub-species in the wild. Threatened by habitat loss, civil unrest, poaching and ecological changes the giraffes at Flamingo Land are part of a global conservation programme to support the breeding of the species in captivity.

“Weather permitting, we hope that our new baby will be available for our visitors to see from the February half term school holidays,” said Ross. “Our giraffe family can be seen in the ‘Lost Kingdom’ section of our park and our viewing platform allows visitors to see them almost ‘eye-to-eye’, as well as from the ground level walkways.”

Visitor talks with a giraffe zookeeper can be enjoyed at 12 noon each day and are included within the zoo admission price to the park.

(NB: please state when entering this competition if you do not wish to receive marketing emails).
