Animal Adventure, an educational animal park in Harpursville, N.Y., launched the live-streaming channel for April the Giraffe on February 10, 2017.

Her birth was broadcast to an online audience of more than a million viewers.
The long-awaited offspring of internet sensation April the Giraffe is being described as strong and "very independent".
According to the Associated Press, a live stream of April's enclosure has been streaming since February.
