April the giraffe is still pregnant and millions of people are watching and waiting for active labor to begin. The Animal Adventure Park (AAP) located in Harpursville, New York, began to live stream their 15-year-old Reticulated giraffe April on Feb 10, 2017, expecting the imminent birth of her calf. Since then, the live giraffe cam has gone viral with countless worldwide tuning in to watch April give birth online. As February and March have come and gone, many are worried that April is having problems with her pregnancy and fears the calf may be in danger are rampant.

The Animal Adventure Park has assured the public that April’s pregnancy is progressing normally and the calf is healthy. Additionally, in a recent labor update shared on the official Facebook page, the AAP stated they plan to let April have an unassisted, natural birth with as much bonding time between mom and calf as possible.
