HARPURSVILLE, N.Y. (CBS4) – Thousands of eyes are on a giraffe as she’s about to give birth.

April, a 15-year-old giraffe at the Animal Adventure Park outside of Binghamton, is due to give birth at any time, and thousands are watching on the park’s live giraffe cam.

Oliver, the parks’ other giraffe, is the unborn calf’s father, and can be seen in the back of the shot.

On Thursday the zoo posted on Facebook, thanking everyone for their support, as well as giving an update on mama April.

“Progression continues,” they say. “We cannot confirm active labor at this time, however giraffes hide their signs as a natural instinct, that is why until we see hooves we will not announce active labor. Behavior is on point, mammary developing is perfect! We are just waiting for the calf!”

The Animal Adventure Park says they will post updates to their Facebook page in the morning and evenings.

They have set up a GoFundMe account for those wishing to donate to help out the giraffe “family fund.”
