    There are two new faces at the zoo.

    Safari Niagara staff recently welcomed two reticulated giraffes to the 150-acre nature park nestled in the heart of Stevensville.

    The giraffe yearlings, Moses and Ziphora, arrived from a zoological facility in the U.S., and are now enjoying their new enclosure at the zoo on Stevensville Road.

    “(Staff at the zoo) are very excited,” Andrea Bouw, a marketing manager for Safari Niagara, said.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Safari Niagara will be welcoming some unexpected guests this summer.

    Following June’s devastating floods in Calgary, the Alberta city’s zoo put out a call to registered members of Canadian Association of Zoos and Aquariums — a nonprofit organization promoting the welfare of animals — to help temporarily relocate 34 animals while the grounds are repaired.

    The Stevensville-based zoo answered quickly and said Monday they will be receiving five Goeldi’s monkeys, four Amazon parrots and two white-handed gibbons, one named Tunku who has lived at the Calgary Zoo for a few decades.
