It's a big year for one of El Paso's male giraffes, Mosi. He'll be heading to his new home in Glen Rose, Texas this week as part of a breeding project.

Mosi will be on exhibit for the community to say goodbye until Thursday, April 24. The Zoo is aware that giraffes are favorites among visitors and want to give them the opportunity to see Mosi before he makes the move to his new home, so don't forget to say goodbye soon!

“Sending Mosi to another institution is evidence of how zoos work together to conserve species such as giraffes. Our staff builds a bond with each of our animals but know that this is an important move. We will all miss Mosi and know that he will be given great care at this outstanding accredited zoo,” said Steve Marshall, El Paso Zoo Director.
