ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – After receiving hundreds of names for the new baby giraffe at the Zoo, the BioPark has narrowed down the suggestions to five.
One name is Julian, in honor of Julian Fennessy, the executive director of the Giraffe Conservation Foundation.
The other suggestions are Swahili names such as Kumi, Upendo, Hodari and Kenya.
The baby giraffe was born at the zoo last month.
The community has until Sunday to cast their vote.
