    This collection has woolly necked stork giant eland and Arabian oryx on their website. I heard they a had a leucistic zebra but don't know if it's still alive.

    How many Woolly-Necked Storks do they have and which species is it? African (C. microscelis) or Asian (C. episcopus)??? They must be one of the last if not THE last holder of the species in the US.

    Episcopus. Don't know how many. It's supposed to be in the walk through Safari.

    Two new giraffes, Randie and Bingwa, arrived according to their Instagram post (in what seems to be a brand-new giraffe exhibit, please correct me if I'm wrong): https://www.instagram.com/p/CSuBaMBM_Rx/
