Fewer than 2,500 Grevy’s zebra survive in the wild today due to loss of habitat, competition with livestock and poaching. As the largest zebra species, Grevy’s can be distinguished from other zebras by their longer legs, narrower stripes, stripeless underbelly and large rounded ears. Grevy’s zebras are only found in northern Kenya and south-eastern Ethiopia.

The Phoenix Zoo is dedicated to supporting these endangered zebras through conservation in the wild and on Zoo grounds. Recently, two male foals were born as a result of a breeding recommendation from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums Species Survival Plan™, whose goal is to maximize the genetic diversity of select species. The Phoenix Zoo is also a proud partner of the Grevy’s Zebra Trust, an organization dedicated to the conservation of Grevy’s zebras in the wild.
