This week, the Giraffe Savannah at Hellabrunn Zoo welcomed the arrival of a new enclosure mate. Two-year-old Zawadi was transferred to Munich from Cologne Zoo. Zawadi, meaning gift in Swahili, will join the zoo’s all-female giraffe group, which includes her sister Baridi.
Within a few hours of her arrival, Zawadi began exploring her new home. The two-year-old will live in the Giraffe Savannah at Hellabrunn Zoo with enclosure mates Taziyah, Makena, Bahati and Baridi.
The Munich Zoo Hellabrunn was founded in 1911 as the first Geo-zoo worldwide. The animals live according to their geographic distribution in complex communities.
Hellabrunn’s Species Conservation Center is a unique forum where zoo visitors can access an amazing amount of information about the zoo’s many projects.
