Conservation Status: Endangered
The large space model of the SPA fits well with equids. Therefore, the Grevy's zebra has been added to the portfolio, because the wild population is probably no more than 2,000 individuals, declining more than 50% in the last 3 decades due to war and habitat loss. The Grevy's Zebra is an excellent addition to SPA because we believe it is relatively prevalent on private lands. The first step will be surveying to determine numbers of animals in the private sector and then beginning to link these herds to create a viable metapopulation.
