Giraffe Naming Competition

We have a new arrival on the African Savanna and he needs a name! The Rothschild giraffe calf was born on 12th September 2019 to proud mum Casey and dad, Tafari, and now joins the rest of the herd of ten giraffes at Dublin Zoo. The healthy giraffe calf stands at 1.8 meters tall and weighs an estimated 60kg.

The Rothschild giraffe is one of the most threatened of the nine sub-species of giraffe.  Rothschild male giraffes grow to six metres in height and can weigh over 2000kg. Fewer than 670 remain in the wild according to the Rothschild Giraffe Project and the Giraffe Conservation Foundation.

Enter the competition to name this endangered species and you could win a family day pass to Dublin Zoo as well as the honour of naming the calf!

As the Rothschild giraffe comes from Eastern Africa, we would like you to choose a name of that origin so please do your research! The closing date for entries is 12pm on Thursday 17th October 2019.
