India’s oldest formally stated zoological park, the Alipore Zoological Gardens, is celebrating the birth of a rare African Giraffe.

With the birth of the newborn, the zoological park now has nine African giraffes. The garden authorities are taking special care of the newborn and its mother.

IUCN had listed the world’s tallest mammal as endangered as the total population size of this subspecies is estimated at less than 200 individuals, although currently increasing under targeted conservation programs.
