International Zebra Day
January 31, 2024
International Zebra Day takes place annually on January 31st. These gentle creatures are facing endangerment due to the reduction of their natural habitats caused by increasing human development. As habitats diminish, so does the safety of these animals. The main objective of International Zebra Day is to promote awareness and inspire actions for zebra conservation. Zebras are predominantly located in African regions, including semi-desert areas in Kenya and Ethiopia, as well as hilly terrain in Namibia, Angola, and South Africa. One of the distinctive features of zebras is their unmistakable black and white stripes, making them easily recognizable.
