Z is for Zebra
Exploration of the human impact on species, specifically the threats on zebras. There are 3 different species of Zebra. The most endangered is the Grevy's Zebra, pictured above, which lives in Ethiopia and parts of Kenya. There are less than 2,000 left of this kind. Their beautiful coat is what makes them a target for poaching, one of their biggest threats next to drought and urbanization of their habitat.
Here's how we can help:
🌱 working with and supporting communities in Africa. Not just the animals, but the people too. You can volunteer your time/resources to help communities plant grass to feed their livestock which feeds their families. We can improve the way we urbanize land for our needs by doing it efficiently with less consequence. This way we can coexist with zebras and so many other animals that have been endangered by us.
🧳 sustainable ecotourism! It is a win win win if you do it right. You can see these animals for yourself on guided tours while supporting the tourism industry in Africa which a lot of small towns depend on for income. Check out David Sheldrick wildlife Trust!
🚙➡️🚲reducing your contribution to climate change. Africa is experiencing some of the worst droughts they have seen because of global warming. There are so many improvements we can make to try to stop the increasing drastic effects of climate change that zebras are seeing in their habitat.
