Animal Adventure, an educational animal park in Harpursville, N.Y., launched the live-streaming channel for April the Giraffe on February 10, 2017. April's almost 16-month pregnancy culminated this Saturday, when she gave birth to her calf after being in labor for two hours. The Harpursville, New York, zoo has opened a baby-naming contest on their website after the calf's Saturday, April 15, birth. 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.

The HC was hearing petitions by radio taxi operators against Ola and Uber being allowed to operate without valid licences. While the TLC has been careful not to name specific companies, the guild clearly designed its rule with Uber in mind.

April's appetite is also healthy; she is "eating everything in sight" and has made a full recovery, AAP representatives said on Facebook.

Patch said the natural curiosity surrounding giraffes and their birthing process was a huge factor in drawing crowds.

Zoo officials later announced on their Twitter page that the newborn giraffe was male and posted a photo of the still-unnamed calf and its mother with the message: "All is well".

More than 1.2 million people tuned in simultaneously at around 6:55 a.m. PST, making it one of the top five most-watched moments during a live event ever on YouTube. Her male calf weighs 129 pounds and stands at 5 feet, 9 inches tall.

The park is allowing people to submit and vote on names for 10 days. "You even get to decide your own spelling".
