George is still love sick!

Oori had paid for and arranged for the transfer of Mrs George but fate stepped in and despite valiant efforts by Pam, Joanne and Gavin Orbell (from Shamwari) complemented by Roger and Steve, his mate did not survive.

The level of love and dedication towards our wildlife by some people that exists in Oori is proved by these efforts to save George’s mate. They were with her all night the team were outstanding in what they did to try and save this female giraffe to keep her on her feet. She died from what we think was capture myophathy. These efforts should be an inspiration to us all. The purchase price was refunded.
We have received advice from many quarters, some varied, one of the suggestions which seems to make sense is that giraffes should be released in pairs or small groups.
