Happy Birthday, Bobo!


The Long Island Game Farm is celebrating Bobo the giraffe’s 2nd birthday on Sunday, July 3, with a rain date of Monday, July 4. 

The party will start at noon as they present him with a special birthday “cake!” He will eat cake as everyone watches and learns facts about giraffes. A percentage of all admissions for the day will go to the Giraffe Conservation Foundation, as reticulated giraffe are on the endangered list.

“Through supporting the Giraffe Conservation Foundation and teaching people about it, we can help save the giraffe species in the wild,” said farm owner Melinda.

Also, on June 21, the farm will be celebrating World Giraffe Day by spending the day with the tallest animal in the world on the longest day of the year!

“By supporting World Giraffe Day, you directly help save giraffe in Africa. With only approximately 117,000 giraffes remaining in the wild, the time is right to act now!,” according to the Giraffe Conservation Foundation.
