The Grevy’s zebra is one of Africa’s most endangered large mammals and is the rarest of Africa’s three different species of zebra. They have undergone the most substantial reduction in their rangelands of any African mammal and habitat loss remains the most serious and widespread threat to their species.
The Grevy’s Zebra Trust (GZT) was founded in 2007 to help conserve and protect the remaining 2,500 individuals of this unique species. Despite being a small, independent wildlife trust, the GZT works in an area covering over 10,000 square kilometres across northern Kenya. It is the only organisation focused solely on saving the Grevy’s zebra, which it does through population monitoring, education and community outreach programmes, protection against poachers and habitat restoration.
