Fear not April the giraffe fans! 

The New York’s Animal Adventure Park announced on Facebook that April’s giraffe cam is coming back soon--and permanently!

The camera will be live every Tuesday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. according to its Facebook post.

“A permanent yard cam will go up this season which will also reconnect you to your favorite giraffe family,” the zoo wrote in their post.

April’s live-stream labor and birth had millions watching online for months, but the zoo finally took down their webcam on April 21-- six days after the baby calf was born.

The zoo will also offer text alerts to “receive weekly updates and photos/video (capturing this milestones); once a week, until May 31st,” the post reads.

Not only that, but the name of April’s calf will finally be revealed on May 1st.

Round one of voting ends Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. Eastern. At 8 p.m. the zoo will announce the 10 name contenders. Round 2 will start at 8 p.m. also .
