This year's annual Drafts for Giraffes celebration will take place during Zoo Music at the ABQ BioPark starting at 6 p.m. 


Join our giraffe animal care staff before the music starts to learn more about giraffes and grab a special brew. $1 from every draft sold this evening will go toward giraffe conservation.


How does a giraffe drink?


  • Giraffes need to splay their legs and lower their long necks in order to sip from a watering hole.


  • Using their tongues, giraffes pump water up their throat, which can hold over a gallon of water on the way up!


  • Giraffes don’t have to drink a lot of water—they usually get enough moisture from the hundreds of pounds of leaves they eat every day.


This event is included with Zoo Music on June 21. Get tickets to Zoo Music
