Giraffes in Point Arena? You betcha!

The B. Bryan Preserve has welcomed their first giraffes - two young male Rothschild Giraffes. They come from the San Diego Zoo. Several more arrived last Thursday.

Here is one of the first arrivals. He weighs over 1300 pounds. So beautiful and so unique. There are less than seven hundred of these giraffes left in the wild.

Thanks to Judy Mello for allowing me to share her photo with you here. To learn more about this fascinating preserve, here's the link:
