New Giraffe Barn

New Giraffe Barn

      The new giraffe barn, which opened in 2015, is a 16,500 square foot building with 7,000 square feet of animal space. Naturally the barn is a vast improvement on the now demolished older structure, with one of the main features seeing the giraffes shift from an all-concrete floor to one that has a 4-foot deep wood-chip substrate.

      Does anybody know how do they manage to clean the urine from that mulch? Although having wood-chips sound great for their joints, having urine soaked wood-chips doesn't sound as good. I know they must replace the mulch after a while, but on the day-to-day exhibit maintenance it must be a pain to clean.
