World Giraffe Day @ Gladys Porter Zoo | Brownsville | Texas | United States

In honor of World Giraffe Day, the Gladys Porter Zoo, in conjunction with the Giraffe Conservation Foundation and zoos world-wide, will be offering extended hours at the Giraffe Landing Feeding Experience. Usually, this exhibit is open on weekends from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., but on this special occasion, it will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. As a special treat, the first 100 visitors to visit Giraffe Landing will be able to feed these gentle giants for free, courtesy of the Brownsville Rotary Club.  If you don’t get to feed the giraffes for free, you can still have the opportunity to feed them for only $3.00. Plus, our zookeepers will be on hand to provide information on giraffes.  There will also be giraffe related activities for visitors to enjoy on this special day . This event is free with purchase of general admission. For more information, visit www.gpz.org or call (956) 546-7187.
