Seneca Park Zoo adding three giraffes by 2018
Rochester, NY (WHAM) - The Seneca Park Zoo will add three giraffes next year.
Monroe County Executive Cheryl Dinolfo announced two female giraffes, and one male will join the zoo by Summer 2018.
It's part of an expansion in the Africa section of the zoo.
The zoo says it also plans to have a tram built by next summer, to transport people from one end of the zoo to the other.
"People knowing that we're going to have an incredible exhibit here where they can actually encounter face to face giraffes, feed the giraffes, that's an experience of a lifetime," said Dinolfo. "And people are very excited about it, we are too."
The zoo says the main building will also be renovated by 2020.
