Early present for giraffes

Our giraffes, pictured above, have been seen sneaking a peek in Santa’s sack and it’s just nine more sleeps until Christmas Day but one present has arrived early!


A couple from Shrewsbury, who adopt our raven Jill and became Keepers for a Day earlier in the year, have sent a festive thank you gift for one of the giraffe keepers.

Avril and Brian Chidley sent a Christmas card to the zoo staff with a giraffe T-shirt and a letter saying: “We both enjoyed our Keeper for the Day experience earlier in the year and would like to wish everyone at the zoo a Happy Christmas and New Year.”

Many thanks for thinking of us at DZG at this most wonderful time of the year!
