Watch April The Giraffe Now Because Animal Adventure Park Is Cutting The Live Cam This Week, Relive Birth

There’s sad news for those who’ve watched April the giraffe via the live cam. It’s shutting down this week. In a new post, Animal Adventure Park (AAP) owner Jordan Patch held fast to the words stated since February. The live giraffe cam will come down approximately five days following the birth of April’s calf. Patch stated viewers could expect the live giraffe cam to end between Wednesday and Friday. Here is a quote from the official Animal Adventure Park Facebook page where Patch discusses the cam’s end.

“The cam will come down between Wed and Friday of this week as planned from the beginning. This decision was made to allow us to focus on the park and our opening.”

Though some outlets are reporting that the live cam will end due to April limping or favoring one leg yesterday, that is not the case. Patch consistently stated since beginning the live YouTube giraffe cam on Feb. 10, 2017, that the cam would end following the birth of April’s calf. The Animal Adventure Park is a relatively new zoo. They are in their fifth season, but because they are located in Harpurville, New York, must shut down for the winter. The park reopens on May 13, 2017, and there simply is no time for the AAP staff to monitor emails, keep up with live chats, the live cam, consistently update Facebook and get their zoo open in time. They have construction underway, new animal exhibits to get ready and are preparing for many events that will take place at the Animal Adventure Park this summer.

The Inquisitr was first to break the story of April the giraffe and the live cam. It was Feb. 15, and we’ll never forget the journey we enjoyed watching April grow in her pregnancy, checking for signs of labor, watching her udders grow and change, and then that glorious moment when Jordan Patch announced active labor had begun. The calf has captured hearts worldwide, but more importantly, the Animal Adventure Park, Jordan Patch and April the giraffe have shed light on the plight giraffes face in the wild. Many people today are talking about giraffes, buying products that feature giraffes, painting pictures of giraffes, writing giraffe-inspired poetry, but more importantly, they are contributing funds to giraffe conservation programs.

The live giraffe cam showed how wonderfully intelligent, funny and sweet-natured giraffes can be. No one expected to witness the type of relationship April has with her caretaker Alyssa, and we all know that giraffes love carrots, thanks to the AAP giraffe cam.

We join the world in thanking the Animal Adventure Park and more specifically, Jordan Patch for opening the doors to his giraffe stall and giving us a look at April, Oliver, and their calf. The response to the live giraffe cam was unprecedented, and no one could have guessed the viral aspect of the cam. April, Oliver and their calf will always remain one of the most popular viral sensations and live streaming animal cams in history.
