Vakilija the Giraffe says thanks for donations for her meals
2021.09.07.

Vakilija the Giraffe says a sincere THANKS to all of her 50 friends who supported her! 1250 euros were donated for Giraffe's meals. The campaign was launched on the Giraffe’s two-year birthday on 9 August. To provide one day with three types of specialized pelleted food, alfalfa hay and specialized mineral supplements, which she receives in addition to the basic feed – willow twigs, alfalfa hay and oats, 25 euros are needed.

These specialized foods and supplements are produced by zoo animal food companies outside Latvia, and designed for zoo Giraffes to provide them with all essential nutrients and minerals in the right proportions to maintain captive animals in good health. Since zoos are the only consumers, the production costs of these special foods are high, and so they are also expensive.
