A zoo has launched a naming competition for their two newly born giraffe calves.
Africa Alive! in Kessingland, Suffolk recently welcomed two reticulated baby giraffes at the zoo with a male giraffe calf born on Wednesday, October 7 and a female giraffe calf born on Friday, October 23.
The competition commences today (Monday, November 16) and will run until Friday, December 4, with entries being made on the zoo’s WildAboutSurvival JustGiving page.
Keepers will choose the winning names shortly after the closing date, which will then be announced on Africa Alive’s social media pages.
Claudia Roberts, joint managing director, said: “The births of the reticulated giraffe calves at Africa Alive! has brought some joyful news at an otherwise difficult time for our zoos.
“Although we are now closed to the public due to the second national lockdown, the donations we are receiving from our amazing guests and members of the public are invaluable to the survival of our zoos.
