A new floor for the giraffes

Andrea, Henri, Jabulani and the other Tierpark giraffes are “floored” by recent renovations to their indoor habitat.

The flooring in the giraffe family’s living room is being replaced thanks to financial support from their long-term sponsor, housing association HOWOGE. Since their sponsor is a housing expert, the giraffes can look forward to a special new surface tailored to their specific needs: a non-slip tarmac that has a less powerful odour and is particularly robust.

Der Wohnzimmerboden unserer Giraffen-Familie wird gerade erneuert – dank finanzieller Unterstützung ihrer langjährigen Paten, der HOWOGE. Und die kennt sich beim Bauen natürlich bestens aus. Deshalb ist der neue Untergrund auch etwas ganz Besonderes: Er besteht aus speziellem Asphalt, der rutschhemmend, weniger geruchsintensiv und besonders robust ist.
