Grevy's Zebra

Grevy’s zebra Equus grevyi is one of Africa’s rarest large mammals now restricted to a core population in northern Kenya and isolated groups in Ethiopia. In Kenya, we were instrumental in helping to create a national conservation strategy for the species and are one of the active members of the Grevy’s Zebra Technical Committee which guides and implements conservation action. Our work includes extensive surveys and monitoring of Grevy’s zebras to understand changes in their populations and distribution at national and local level. We also study the species’ spatial and behavioural ecology, disease, and interactions with carnivores.

We manage the International Studbook and the European Endangered Species Programme (EEP) for Grevy’s zebra and encourage participants to support our conservation initiatives in Kenya.
