Meet Our Giraffes
How you can help
At the Calgary Zoo, we’re passionate about wildlife conservation. Your donations and membership costs can go a long way towards helping us fund our efforts.
Where We Live
Masai giraffes are found in Kenya and Tanzania, while the reticulated giraffes live in Kenya, Ethiopia, and Somalia. They like to roam in small groups and make their homes in woodlands and dry, open acacia savannahs.
Did You Know?
Giraffe legs can pack a real punch. Full-grown giraffes can kick hard enough to break a lion’s skull or spine.
