Animal Adventure Park in upstate New York announced on Thursday that they are going to start streaming live video of the giraffe -- plus her new calf Tajiri and mate Oliver -- on a much more frequent basis.

Previously, streams were only taking place once a week. Now, the streams will take place from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. (Mountain Time) Sunday through Friday. They will start up on this schedule later today.

"We're bringing you into our wild kingdom here at Animal Adventure and bringing you a little closer and back in tune with our giraffe family," Park owner Jordan Patch said in a live broadcast which was made in front of dozens of park visitors.

Patch said they will also be doing a separate live feed -- at 10 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays -- that will show off other species at the park.

April gave birth to Tajiri, a boy whose name means Hope or Confidence in Swahili, on April 15.

To keep up on all things April, head over to her official website.
