Tall Wonders Giraffe Habitat
Grand opening President's Day weekend

Exactly one year from the February 2009 groundbreaking for Tall Wonders, we are proud to announce the grand opening on President’s Day weekend 2010!

Visit the Zoo starting Friday, February 12 and see Val, Skye & Goody in their new home. For the very first time, visitors will be eye to eye with the stately residents on the 1,100 square foot raised deck. The elevated platform also provides a magnificent view into the neighboring zebra and ostrich area.

The state-of-the-art block barn (yes, it’s heated!) provides warm nights for the three giraffes, while the expanded grounds allow for leisurely giraffe-size strolls during the day.

With the finishing touches almost completed, we are grateful to our friends for your support and commitment to the project. We are just dollars away from reaching the $2 million goal. If you would like to participate in providing some of the still-needed “extras” in equipment, office supplies or giraffe necessities, we would appreciate your help.

The Sacramento Zoological Society is 100% committed to providing the best possible care and facilities for the Zoo’s animals. With continued community support, we will improve and enrich the Zoo for future generations.

Thank you for making it all possible!

The giraffes were allowed access into the new yard on December 20. They were cautious but Val and Skye explored their new exhibit and even did some running and kicking. Goody decided to stay inside and check it out another day.

The Sacramento Zoo officially broke ground on the Tall Wonders project in February 2009.
