New baby giraffe at Auckland Zoo

I have had the absolute pleasure to photograph the yet-to-be-named baby giraffe at Auckland Zoo when she was only 24 hours old. I was at site on Sunday morning together with a Campbell live TV crew for the first vet check done 24 hours after Rukiya gave birth to this super gorgeous sweetheart!! I am sure you’ll see plenty of pictures of this darling in the days to come but let me share some of the very early impressions of mum Rukiya and baby with you.

Go and check her out as soon as she is allowed out in the Pridelands area…she is adorable! More photos of Day 1 soon…

Auckland Zoo commissioned Kathrin to document the making of the largest project in the Zoo’s history Te Wao Nui. Kathrin documented the construction site from June 2011 until the opening day on 10th September 2011. Next to documenting the overall progress for archival purposes a main task was to capture enticing images for all publicity leading up to the opening of Te Wao Nui. A small selection of these images are presented in this gallery. They were taken at a very busy construction site over the course of several weeks.
