Animal Adventure Park Update: Watch Live Giraffe Cam And Jordan Patch Videos

If you were one of the millions who tuned in to watch April the giraffe give birth via live stream you weren’t alone. I remember when I first contacted Jordan Patch, owner of the Animal Adventure Park located in Harpursville, New York. I contacted him on Facebook, after finding the video of April on YouTube. There were very few viewers and the video wasn’t embeddable. I told Jordan I would like to write about April and embed the video in my article.  Little did I know the video would go viral and more than 1.2 million would join across the world to watch April give birth to her beautiful calf Tajiri live online. It was a wonderful moment and I like many found myself glued to my computer, canceling my Saturday plans, and watching April give birth, then bond with baby Taj.

Much has transpired since that first February 2017 article, and I expect we’ll continue to see great things from Jordan Patch, April and Oliver, and Tajiri. First, I can’t begin to say enough kind words about Jordan Patch and his demeanor online and on-camera. Patch knows and loves his animals. It’s clear to see, and I believe that is part of the reason why April went viral and became a household name. If you stopped watching April the giraffe live on YouTube following the birth you are really missing out. Though the cam went down for a while, it is now back and live every Sunday through Friday between the hours of 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. ET. Tajiri is growing leaps and bounds and the latest update has his height at 8 feet tall and his weight at 260!

Every Tuesday and Thursday, Jordan Patch hosts an interactive teaching session where he introduces viewers to one of the animals that reside at the New York zoo. You may watch videos from those teaching sessions below. The videos are in addition to the live giraffe cam that continues to stream from April’s barn that she temporarily share with Tajiri. At one point, Tajiri will be rehomed to a facility that has an active giraffe conservation, breeding program. For now; however, Taj is doing wonderfully living with mom while dad Oliver is in the next stall. It’s interesting to see Ollie giving a careful watch from his adjacent barn stall and you could see that he was more interested in Taj than some giraffe bulls might have been, even from the giraffe calf’s birth.

If you want to visit the Animal Adventure Park, you can find more information regarding events, hours of operation, and location at their official website. April the giraffe has her own website, you can find more information about April there.

    I think the relocation of any of the Giraffes is IFFY because other organizations Rules and Policies are not the same and do not have the same Family Spirit as this organization. Many of these so called programs allow for hunting, killing and neglect through lack of funds. This recently happened to the people of Seattle with the Relocation of the Elephants to a “good zoo” program in Oklahoma City. The Public was against it, but the City Zoo Organization decided they wanted this based on a Policy Decision for the future of the entire zoo. From the Friends of the Elephants Website: Woodland Park Zoo did relocate elephants Chai and Bamboo in 2015, but to the Oklahoma City Zoo, an even worse zoo for elephants. Chai died within only eight months of arriving in Oklahoma, allegedly from substandard care and negligence. Bamboo survives, but as a victim and aggressor, incompatible with other elephants at the zoo and suffering from chronic health conditions.
