The Darling Downs Zoo is now home to two beautiful new giraffes. The two year olds are settling into their expansive new home and will make their public debut on Boxing Day.
The two females are destined to be part of a breeding program here on the Downs and a young male will join them later next year.
Giraffe were once very numerous in Africa but they are now listed as Vulnerable as fewer than 100,000 are left on the entire African continent.
The Darling Downs Zoo is proud to now be part of a scientifically based Australasian program to help preserve this iconic species.
