Lion Country Safari Welcomes New Baby Zebra to Largest Herd in the Country

On Friday, May 6th, 2022, Lion Country Safari welcomed a male baby Plains zebra to its herd. The foal and mom are spending quality time together and are visible to guests from their cars in the Hwange section of the safari, along with the rest of the zebra herd. Lion Country Safari is home to largest herd of zebra on record in the United States with nearly 60 zebra under its care.

Plains zebra are listed as Near Threatened with a decreasing population by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). Of the three species of zebra (Plains, Mountain, and Grevy’s), the Plains zebra is the most abundant, but all 3 species are in peril due mostly to poaching and habitat loss.
