Zuberi, a calf recently born at the Taronga Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo, has recently taken his first steps! His first steps, as well as those of his sibling Kibo, were documented shortly after their birth. Due to declining global giraffe populations, the Taronga Western Plains Zoo hopes to raise money and awareness to help the giraffes.
- The zoo says that in just 30 years the global giraffe population has fallen by up to 40% due to poaching for bush meat and habitat encroachment
- Taronga Western Plains zoo in Dubbo, New South Wales, has welcomed two brand new additions to the giraffe herd, born within one week of each other
- The zoo aims to spread awareness of their plight and raise money for conservation in Kenya
