The endangered Grevy's zebra (Equus grevyi) has declined from an estimated 15,000 individuals in the 1970s to approximately 3,042 individuals in 2018 – representing an 80% decline in global numbers over the past four decades. Over 92% of the remaining Grevy’s zebra are found in Kenya, with three isolated populations in Ethiopia.

The Grevy’s Zebra Trust (GZT) was established in 2007 to address the urgent need to conserve Grevy's zebra and is the only organization whose sole focus is conserving this species. GZT works exclusively with local communities, and through our conservation program covers an area of over 10,000 km2 in the Samburu, Isiolo, and Marsabit Counties of northern Kenya. GZT recognizes that the conservation of this endangered species cannot occur in isolation from people due to the fragile habitat both inhabit and because Grevy’s zebra, people and livestock rely on the same resources to survive. GZT strives to strike a lasting balance between the needs of communities and those of the endangered Grevy’s zebra. The outputs from our work with communities are being used to inform local and national conservation actions across the species range.
