The Grevy’s zebras are in grave danger. Just a few decades ago in the 1980’s, there were approximately 15,000 in population. Over the last 30 years, that number has dropped almost 80% and today, fewer than 3,000 remain. About 2,812 of these special zebras live in Kenya and 230 live in Ethiopia.
At Zebra Pen, we strive to celebrate uniqueness and individuality in everything we do. Our spokesanimal Zen, a Grevy’s zebra, is an important part of our culture and represents this commitment to honoring individuality.
