@ValuSkr- I never can find the live chats.  Where are they?  Facebook, right?  Normally after live chats are over, you can watch the taped version, but I can't find them.


Why is it, when I have a 50/50 guess at something, I'm always 100% wrong?

@gidgetgh  The Live Chats are on Youtube, just right of the video.  I imagine it's the same as the FB chat, though I can't say for sure since I've never seen the FB chat.  On the Youtube chat, people can donate money- and many do.

Re: APRIL the Giraffe is HAVING HER BABY!

In case you haven't seen the Q & A with the Animal Park owner here's a link.

 

Some interesting insight into the calf, when he might wean and leave the park, as well as him actually 'sharing' space with Oliver.

 

He also mentions that this calf may be April's last, depending on several factors.

Re: APRIL the Giraffe is HAVING HER BABY!

Another interesting article re: the live viewing stats on April and famly:

 

April the Giraffe's live viewing party is hours away from coming to an end, but when the lights go out, the final numbers for the 2 month long Internet sensation will be staggering.

 

The Animal Adventure Park in NY is cutting the live stream Friday at 4:30 PM ET ... and it's already had nearly 273 MILLION viewers since it started on February 10.

 

Total minutes spent watching -- and mostly waiting for April to give birth -- is 8 BILLION minutes worldwide. We're told 1.2 million people were watching when she finally did squeeze out her calf last weekend.

 

Make no mistake ... April made history, because YouTube tells us her channel is the second most live-viewed ever. Only League of Legends eSports channel has more, and you don't get the miracle of life watching that!

 

The big winner here is obviously Toys 'R' Us -- which came on as a sponsor, pre-birth.

Peace out, April. Thanks for the memories!

@KingstonsMom Thank you for posting this link.  It sure was very informative to listen to Jordan and Allysia.

 

I guess we will be losing the web cam today, but I am grateful for their having shared April, Olliver, and the calf this long.

@LTT1 - This video is just too much! I raced home today to get here in time. I actually cried when I watched it. I thought while I was driving home how strange it would be not to "check in" on April and family! Thank you for posting it! Smiley Happy

Re: APRIL the Giraffe is HAVING HER BABY!

O......k......I really didn't need to see that video.  Crying.  

 

Is there going to be some sort of "thing" at 4:30?  Announcement of the baby name or anything or just the camera goes off?
