The white rhino calf at the Fresno Chaffee Zoo needs a name and recently reached out to the community to help them. Pick below and enter!

There are six potential names for the calf:

Rudo (love)
Matimu (history made)
Sandili (we have increased)
Khari (like a king)
Shomari (forceful personality)
Kirabo (gift)

Guests can vote on their favorite calf name by dropping wood tokens into a set of specially designed, clear collection boxes at Twiga Terrace giraffe feeding station.

Each collection box will have one potential name on it. By dropping their tokens into the device, guests are voting for a particular name. Tokens can be purchased at the main ticket booth or Twiga Terrace for $1 each.

At the end of the promotion, the name with the most tokens will win! Best of all, all of the money collected from this promotion will be donated to the International Rhino Foundation.
