June 21 is World Giraffe Day!
Visit a Zoo or explore information on the web.
I think the closest giraffes to me are in Peoria:
This celebration is organized by The Giraffe Conservation Foundation, which seeks funding to help preserve this iconic and beloved species. Their website has lots of images of giraffes, and invites people to “stick their necks out” to save the giraffes.
I have to say that I would not want to live on an Earth without giraffes.
