Busch Gardens Tampa Bay welcomed yet another sweet baby giraffe over the weekend! Patty is 5’5 tall and weighs 105 lbs. She is the 3rd giraffe calf to be born at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay in the last four months. Park Guests will be able to see her and her mother, Bititi, on the Serengeti plain soon.
This birth is part of Busch Gardens’ participation in the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ (AZA) Species Survival Plan (SSP). The mission of the SSP is to cooperatively manage specific, and typically threatened or endangered, species populations within AZA-accredited facilities. Busch Gardens’ participation helps create genetically diverse, self-sustaining populations to guarantee the long-term future of these animals.
