The Great Grevy’s Zebra Rally

Somewhere in Northern Kenya lies a gem. A stunningly beautiful but endangered zebra that many Kenyans have never heard about, let alone seen. This is the story of the Grevy’s zebra. A rare Kenyan heritage that needs to be protected before it goes extinct. Grevy’s zebras are the largest of the three zebra species. The other two are plains zebra and mountain zebra. Grevy’s zebra are taller, have narrow stripes, white belly, round ears and brown muzzle, which easily distinguishes them from the common plains zebra that are usually smaller in size and have larger stripes and a black muzzle.

Happy New Year from WildlifeDirect

We begin the year 2018 on a good note for elephants as China’s domestic ivory trade comes to a close. China is considered to be the largest consumer of ivory and with the closure of its legal ivory trade, it is our hope that this will reduce the slaughter of African elephants that are currently on the verge of extinction. We at WildlifeDirect want to take this opportunity to wish you Happy New Year and thank you for your incredible support throughout 2017.

Marchers across the world demand justice for wildlife

Today, 7 October 2017, thousands of people are gathering in more than 100 cities all over the world to show solidarity with wildlife in the Global March for Elephants, Rhinos and Lions. This year’s theme ‘Justice for All’ draws attention to the dire threat to these species as a result of international wildlife crime. In my home city Nairobi, the planning for this march has involved tens of organizations, including NGOs, local and national government agencies, universities, schools, companies, diplomatic embassies and local communities.

Burn horns, save rhinos

September 22, 2017 | Paula Kahumbu and Andrew Halliday
Today, September 22, is World Rhino Day. Rhinos were once widespread across Asia and Africa and even in Europe, where they are depicted on cave paintings. Today their situation is precarious. The world population of the northern white rhino now consists of 5 individuals. Sudan, the last surviving male, is now beyond breeding age. He and two female companions are living out their lonely final years under the care of Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya.
