TULSA — The Tulsa Zoo’s staff is busy turning Samburu the giraffe’s bachelor pad into a home suitable for two new female giraffes.
The zoo hopes to get the two females in October, one from a zoo in Santa Barbara, Calif., and the other from the Wilds Zoo near Cumberland, Ohio.
The 9-year-old California giraffe is being donated, and the Tulsa Zoo is buying the 5-year-old Ohio giraffe.
The city of Tulsa set aside $25,000 for the purchase of the animal, but the zoo needs to raise an additional $50,000 for the rest of the purchase price, transportation costs for both females, and upgrades to the giraffe exhibit and barn, Evans said.
