Saving Zebras in the WildZebras are an integral part of our culture at Zebra Pen Corporation. The traits that make zebras unique are the same traits that make us unique. So when we became aware that the largest of the zebra species, Grevy’s zebra, is endangered and at risk of becoming extinct, our ears stood at full attention to the urgency of the issue.
The Problem:The wild population of Grevy’s zebra was 15,000 in the 1980s. That number dropped to 2,500 in 2008 – a staggering 80% decline, a population that continues to deteriorate by the day.
The Solution:Raise awareness around the globe, and support conservation efforts immediately. We’re excited to announce our partnership with the Association of Zoos & Aquariums and Grevy’s Zebra Trust.
As a proud supporter of the AZA's conservation programs, we’re donating $15,000 to save endangered Grevy’s zebras. In 2012, AZA-accredited institutions provided $160 million in support of approximately 2,700 conservation projects in more than 115 countries. As a result, AZA facilities collaborate with Grevy’s Zebra Trust, an organization established in January 2007 to address the urgent need to conserve Grevy’s zebra in the community rangelands of Ethiopia and Kenya.
