Each and every day 7 days a week all year long in every possible type of weather, Safari Niagara’s devoted Animal Care Team works diligently to ensure our animals receive the best possible care. Join us for a behind the scenes tour as keepers explain some of the trials and tributes facing them on a daily basis as they care for these noble creatures.

While exploring behind the scenes at the Giraffes, keepers will take you on a journey. You will learn how the tallest mammal in world is able to travel from zoo to zoo and exactly what it takes to bring them into Canada from another country. Learn the importance of quarantine and what is involved while working through the quarantine process. See how much thought goes into creating the environment that they now call home.

Ever wonder how it is possible for a giraffe to have the same number of vertebrate in the neck as humans; or how tall a baby giraffe is when it is born? While keepers answer these and many more questions they will also explain the need for sustainable captive populations; how these populations are governed and the importance it has on wild populations.

Join us for a behind the scenes tour and let Moses, Ziphora and Rainbow steal your heart as you stand next to one of the world’s most iconic species.
