Mama & baby Giraffe Mama & baby Giraffe Pic by Jacquie

Come to the Kansas City Zoo and see what it feels like to be as high up as a giraffe - take the skyride across Africa to get a new look at the animals.  Explore the research areas of the zoo to learn about conservation and animal sciences.  Or just relax and watch some of your favorite animals - like the chimpanzees, lions, meerkats or apes.
