Grévy's zebra live on the arid grassy plains of East Africa. They have to eat large quantities of food to get enough nourishment. Unfortunately a lot of goats are also being reared in their habitat. They eat so much that there is (too) little food left over for the Grévy's zebra.
In Ethiopia, over the last twenty years the number of Grévy's zebra has reduced from 1,500 to 110. People are looking for ways to protect the Grévy's zebra. A lot of wildlife parks, including the Beekse Bergen Safari Park, are making financial contributions to support this research. Wildlife parks are also trying to breed these animals as much as possible.
Waiting for Females
Grévy's zebra form temporary herds of one stallion and a number of mares. A stallion defends his territory against other males and almost never leaves the area. Even if the female group does. He will stay and wait to for the next group of mares to mate with.
