Baby Talk featuring a pair of Grevy’s zebra foals
Wednesday, August 14, 2019
Visit the Zoo before it opens for an exclusive viewing of a pair of real charmers and chat with the person who knows these foals best. Classified by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as endangered, the L.A. Zoo has participated in the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) Species Survival Plan (SSP) for Grevy’s zebra since the 1980s.
Equus grevyi is the largest and most threatened of the three zebra species. Grevy’s zebra is found in the semi-arid and open scrub grasslands of southern Ethiopia and northern Kenya. It is estimated that approximately 2,800 individuals still inhabit the wild. The two foals, a female and male born this past spring, are the Zoo’s first zebra births in 30 years. Come hear about the efforts underway at the L.A. Zoo—and internationally—to preserve and increase the global population of the species.
