Conservation

There are currently only around 750 mature adults Grevy’s zebra remaining in the wild. The threats to these zebra include loss of habitat, hunting and also diseases such as anthrax.

As part of a consortium of conservation organisations, Banham Zoo has supported the Grevy’s Zebra Conservation Project for many years. Current activities include monitoring zebra numbers, providing drought relief and carrying out research into the detection and prevention of diseases.

Here at the zoo our Grevy’s zebra are part of a European Breeding Programme to help conserve the species in captivity.
