Statistics on giraffe life expectancy vary. A Knoxville, Tennessee, zoo giraffe that was said to be the nation’s oldest was euthanized at 31 in 2019.
April attracted a huge online audience as she carried her fourth calf in 2017 at the privately owned zoo in Harpursville, a village about 130 miles northwest of New York City.
The giraffe cam became the second most-watched livestream in YouTube history, at least at the time, with more than 232 million views and 7.6 billion minutes of live watch time over several months.
At least 1.2 million people watched as the male calf, eventually named Tajiri, was born – appropriately enough – in the month of April.
April’s giraffe cam was the second most live-viewed channel in YouTube’s history at the time, with more than 232 million live views from February to May 2017
An online fundraising campaign pulled in more than $150,000 for the care of April, her mate and the calf.
Other ventures – including a Toys `R´ Us sponsorship of the YouTube stream, monetized text messages and a clothing line – also brought money to the zoo.
The owners said it would be used for zoo upkeep, wildlife conservation in Africa and local children with unexpected medical expenses.
