International Zebra Day – January 31, 2024

International Zebra Day is celebrated every year on January 31.

With their natural environment diminishing and human development increasing, these gentle animals are in danger.

Zebras are found mainly on the African continent, in the semi-desert areas of Kenya and Ethiopia, as well as in the hilly regions of Namibia, Angola, and South Africa.

Most likely, an alliance of conservation organizations including the Conservation Bioscience Institute and the Smithsonian National Zoo launched International Zebra Day.

International Zebra Day aims to raise awareness of the living conditions of zebras and how their numbers can be protected from further decline.

Currently, three types of zebras can be found in the wild. These are the Grévy zebra, the plains zebra, and the mountain zebra.

Zebras are found in the African savannah where their natural habitat has been well preserved and not all zebras are at risk of extinction.
