The state of wild giraffes is no laughing matter. Worldwide, giraffe populations have decreased by 40 percent in the last 30 years, leaving fewer than 100,000 giraffes in the wild, according to Mike Bona, lead giraffe keeper at the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens. Despite this glum outlook, Malibu Wines hopes offer an evening of levity and support for the tall, gentle giants on Wednesday, June 20.
