Re-Build the Barn

What is Re-Build the Barn?

Help Roer’s Zoofari in the construction of our new giraffe enclosure. Due to an unfortunate barn fire, our old enclosure is unsuitable for our giraffes. In order for us to be able to bring back these gentle giants we are reaching out to the community to help us raise the capital to bring them back for all of our amazing visitors to see once again.
