HELP US BRING BABY HOME
Posted September 28, 2019 & filed under Animal Blog
Let’s continue Kibo’s legacy – one of love, oneness, and purity. He brought the spirit of the wild to so many guests, and would want us to continue his cause as an ambassador for his species.
There is a baby giraffe in need of a loving home, and with your help, we can bring him into our park and into all of our lives.
Kibo the giraffe first arrived at Out of Africa Wildlife Park in 2002 when he was just three years old. For seventeen years, thousands of guests were able to interact with him on the African Bush Safari. If they were lucky enough, they were able to snag a kiss from him, winning him the title of “Best Kisser”. He was loved by many, inspired most, and always left a lasting memory. His keepers referred to him as the “shar pei giraffe”, as he was uniquely born with many wrinkles. He had an unusually large personality which has left an everlasting impression on the park, its staff, and its guests worldwide.
On August 20, 2019, we had to say goodbye to our dear friend due to complications in recovery from a necessary anesthetic procedure. An emptiness engulfed the park. Kibo wasn’t an ordinary giraffe — he was part of the glue that held our family together. To many, Kibo represented Heaven on earth and his memory will live foremost in our minds forever.
The staff at Out of Africa want to continue Kibo’s legacy – one of love, oneness, and purity. Kibo brought the spirit of the wild to so many guests, and would want us to continue his cause as an ambassador for his species. In order to accomplish this, we need to seek financial support from those who share a piece of Kibo in their hearts and who wish to hand the baton off to a future “Kibo”. Let his new generation fill the hearts of our future generations with the love of nature.
We need to reach a goal of $75,000 in order to bring a young male giraffe back into our family. We realize that it is a huge cost, one that we cannot accomplish on our own. But with your help, there is a baby giraffe in need of a loving home that we can bring into our park and into all of our lives.
Thank you for all of the support that has been given to us, not only in recent times, but for the past 31 years. As our guests, you have become part of the Out of Africa family, and have helped contribute to the legacy that our animals leave on earth.
