I think Grévy's zebras are beautiful, and I can't believe they may become extinct one day. There are three types of zebras, and Grévy's are the only one that's endangered, though one other is vulnerable. Here are eight facts about this lovely animal in no particular order: 8. They live 20 years 7. They can run 40 mph. 6. Since 1970, there has been a 75% decline in population. 5. They live mainly in Kenya and Ethiopia. 4. No two zebras have the same stripes. (I'm sure most people know this, but some may not). 3. They can go 5 days without water. I thought this was amazing until I looked up the length camels can survive without water, and that is 6 months. 2. There are only 3,000 of these beautiful animals left in the world, though Wikipedia states the population has become more stable, which I assume means they are keeping up their numbers. 1. The female gestation is 390 days until the sweet foal is born. Most of these facts were found on Wikipedia. Here are two sites to help or learn more facts: http://www.awf.org/wildlife-conservation/grevys-zebra http://www.grevyszebratrust.org/ The photo is free to use: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Zebra_Equus_Grevyi_1.jpg

Some care but the majority either don't want to know or don't care @misunderstood_zombie too many people are trying to get that almighty $ to buy whatever it is they feel is important. Most probably have no clue about our planet and what we've done to it and it's habitats.
