Your purchase of giraffe shirts, sweatshirts, hats, toys and plush, books, puzzles, home décor, and souvenirs support the giraffe conservation and education efforts of the not-for-profit San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance.
Giraffes are the tallest land animals, able to look into a second-story window without having to stand on tiptoes! And it takes a lot of leaves to fuel such large animals, up to 75 pounds of acacia tree leaves per day. The Uganda giraffe is endangered, and survives in a few small, isolated populations in Kenya and Uganda. Yet at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, we have had over 100 births so far in our large African Plains habitat.
