LOTS of Wild Deers. Only a FEW Giraffes that's not always close enough to HAND FEED.

At least the giraffes in Louisiana can drop their babies on time! #April 😂

Yep you can hop over there

Quinn Morris and Carsyn Morris

Kristyn- ok we definitely should have roadtripped all the way up there...

If you love fallow deer, you'll love GWL. Lol I wish it was still as great as it was 15 years ago when I was a kid when they had more variety.

Christina Parker

Sounds great... except the last two times I've been they didn't even take us near the giraffes?

I can't wait to go next week. I love giraffes, I hope I will be able to get this close

Last time we went didn't get that close so I sure hope we can get this close to them where we can feed them..

I was so excited to see my favorite animal which is the giraffes. I visited this place last week and it was not at all the way they advertise feed them out of your hand....what a joke. We were never close enough to feed them so my visit was a waste.

I use to live in Covington, born & raised in NOLA but have never been to the GW. Next time I am in that area I am going. I have been wanting to for a long time.

You go guys and gals!

The staff members at GW are Excellent. I don't believe I have ever seen a frown or heard a complaint or whine even when it was cold or hot or the tourers were loud. They make the trio enjoyable ALWAYS!

Susie Barber Trahan we need to go

Thank Yall for Everything!!!

See y'all there!

Global Wildlife Center is proud to welcome Nala, our first baby Reticulated Giraffe born this year! Nala was born to her mother, Sara, on Sunday, March 26th at 8:47 pm. Sara, a first time mother, has graciously accepted her new roles of motherhood without trouble. Nala is slowly learning her new surroundings and has taken well to her new 900 acre home! 

All of Global Wildlife Center’s giraffes birth naturally on our preserve. Amazingly, the expecting mothers will let our animal care team know when its time to birth their young by excluding themselves from their herd. This process of natural birthing in a free roaming environment is much less stressful for the animals, and allows the best outcome for their young. Within minutes of birth the baby will stand and nurse from their mother. This is vital for their survival and an incredible sight to witness! 

Our new baby was given the name Nala by Mr. Ken Matherne, founder of Global Wildlife Center. Nala is a name of African origin meaning beloved. She will truly be a great addition to our herd! With the birth of Nala, Global Wildlife Center now has a herd of 14 Reticulated giraffes, making it one of the largest free roaming herds in North America. 

For more information on Nala or how you can get up close and personal with our giraffe family call 985-624-WILD or visit us on the web at
