Global Giraffe Day combined with weather appropriate for the summer solstice, turned Roosevelt Park Zoo into a.... well Zoo.
The day was celebrated all over the world by more than one hundred zoos and wildlife parks....
But Roosevelt Park Zoo is the only place in North Dakota where you can see the tallest animal in the world.
There were enrichment stations where visitors could, without cost, help decorate cookies and logs for the giraffes to enjoy.
Hoofstock Keeper, Allison Suda was also available through the event for any questions visitors had about the giraffes or their treats.
(Allison Suda, Hoofstock Keeper) "We have oatmeal, which is one of their favorite treats... They also like peanut butter, also some carrots and yams... raisins- they love cheerios. They can decorate their own cookies, like a sugar cookie kind of thing. And then they're also putting oatmeal and pumpkin into a log to make feeder logs."
All the money made off the feeding stations goes towards local giraffes and a giraffe conservation.
