TAGGED “Z” FOR ZEBRA
Yesterday, June 26, 2013, I went on a wild safari adventure to THE WILDS in Zanesville, Ohio.
The Wilds is one of the largest and most innovative wildlife conservation centers in the world. Located on nearly 10,000 acres, it is home to rare and endangered species from around the world living in natural, open-range habitat, as well as home to hundreds of indigenous species. The mission of the Wilds is to advance conservation through science, education and personal experience.
The Grevy’s Zebra is on the endangered species list. It’s from Northern Kenya, Southern Ethiopia. There are fewer than 3,000 Grevy’s zebra remaining in the wild. Hunting for their skins and competition for food and water with domestic livestock are contributing factors to the decline in Grevy’s zebras. The largest of the three zebra species, the Grevy’s can be distinguished by a large patch of white found on either side of its tail. All information taken from The Wilds Visitor’s Guide.
In honor of Flicker Comments Tagged: Z challenge, I submit my photos of the Grevy’s Zebra.
I will post move of my adventurous day at another time.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
