Zoo’s baby giraffe a fine, wee Bonnie

The Greater Vancouver Zoo’s baby giraffe has been named Bonnie.

The Greater Vancouver Zoo’s baby giraffe has been named Bonnie.

The African Rothschild’s giraffe was given the Scottish moniker at a party celebrating her third-month birthday at the zoo in Aldergrove yesterday.

Around 1,000 entries in the name-the-baby contest were whittled down to three and the mother giraffe was offered three food choices, each corresponding to a name.

Naivasha, meaning “lake in Kenya,” was runner-up.

The winner, Renae Warnock, took home a yearlong family membership to the zoo and a private behind-the-scenes encounter with the giraffes.
