I think a big playground would be great to add. Would give the kids something to entertain them while they wait. Maybe even a splash pad for those hot summer days. Another suggestions would be a concession stand with just snacks and drinks separate from the gift shop.

Toni Courtney soooo... definitely not a chuckee cheese

Is the middle of it going to be where the tour drives through?

Its Squirrel Appreciation Day! Did you know that squirrels are important for the environment because when they bury seeds it promotes the growth of plants in different areas? There are 285 different species of squirrels, which is not surprising considering they have been around since the Eocene Epoch - over 33 million years! #SquirrelAppreciationDay

My dog loves to chase squirrels up a tree. She is fast, so I know she'll catch one some day.

I love squirrels

How are things looking for today because I really wanted to see the animals?

I booked tomorrow for the 10:45 tour. My little boy turns six! We’ve heard such great things about this place and are excited to make our first visit! We will be coming from Long Beach, Ms ❀️ can’t wait! See you tomorrow morning πŸ₯³

I love these. Saturday is supposed to be a wash. Do yall still do them on the rain?! I'd be the crazy person trying to pet some animals getting soaked. I have no shame!

Price for 2 ppl?

This baby g is at Global Wildlife Center which is just about 45 minutes from me on the northshore of New Orleans. It’s an amazing place that I definitely recommend for anyone visiting the area. They have had a new baby giraffe at least once a year for several years. One of the 2 males there is named Brees- so I’m thinking Saint would be a great name. Second choice is Louie. πŸ¦’βšœοΈπŸ’›


I live beside Global wildlife really love seeing the giraffes.

The correct spelling is Louis, which is pronounced “Louie”. Ask a French teacher

Saint or Louie.



I vote for Louie 😍



He looks like a Louie.




Nathan Thornton Collins might enjoy helping to name a giraffe.

Louie or Geoffrey!

SAINT!! #whodat



I say Louie. My husband says Geoffrey.


Geoffrey. Perfect since Toys R Us closed last year. This would be in honor of mascot.
