The live stream first appeared on YouTube two months ago and the number of viewers quickly rose with the news that the giraffe was pregnant and close to giving birth.

Reacting to news that the giraffes will continue to be video superstars, fans have left more than 10,000 messages on Facebook.

Do you want continued updates about April and family?

According to The Associated Press, Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York, is the home of April, a giraffe who was preparing to deliver her baby.

For the second time in two weeks, the US says that an aircraft carrier strike group is heading north into the western Pacific. South Korea's Unification Ministry and its intelligence agency both said they were unable to confirm the report.


With hundreds of thousands of curious April fans tuning in on a daily basis, it is safe to say that bringing back the cam is a move fans were very much hoping for. The livestream and birth has brought in a lot of money to the rural upstate NY zoo, which says the money will go to park improvements, a contribution to the Giraffe Conservation Foundation and unexpected medical expenses for local children.

There will also be a permanent camera in the yard.

The news of the new cam were confirmed by the park on their official Facebook page.

April's pregnancy was originally vaulted into global headlines in late February after YouTube briefly yanked the zoo's live stream following complaints by animal activists that it violated the site's policies concerning "nudity and sexual content". The big reveal is "tentatively" set for May 1. The park plans to announce the calf's name on May 1.
