‘Burreaux’ One of Three Possible Names for Baton Rouge Zoo’s Baby Giraffe
Last month we brought you the story about the Baton Rouge Zoo wanting the public's input in helping name their new baby giraffe. The nomination process is over and the top three names have been revealed.
Up for consideration as names for the male reticulated giraffe born the day after Christmas are Romeo, Burreaux, and Kiume (which means masculine and strong in Swahili).
As I wrote back on January 9th, "I can't be the only one that believes the winning name will be Burreaux?!?"
It's a forgone conclusion, right?
We'll find out soon enough as the public can now vote on their choice.
Anyone can vote on their favorite name by making a donation of $1 to Friends of the Baton Rouge Zoo at the following link: http://www.brzoo.org/give/name-the-giraffe/.
All donations will go toward conservation funding. Voting will end on February 13 at noon and the winning name will be announced on February 14, 2020.
