Behind the Scenes

That’s how much grain the Audubon Zoo’s four male giraffes can consume together in just one day.
The annual food budget for the zoo’s more than 1,400 creatures tops over $450,000. While that represents a lot of fruit, vegetables and grains, it is only about 2 percent of the overall operating budget (Audubon Zoo and Audubon Park combined have an annual operating budget of just under $26 million).
