Stripes Are Always in Season

Zebras are instantly recognizable for their cool black stripes, which are believed to help dazzle their predators and prevent insect bites. Each stripy pattern is unique, so no two zebras are the same. These stripes are so distinctive, we even named a road feature after them: the zebra crossing! 

There are three different species of zebra: plains, mountain, and Grevy’s. All zebras are part of the equid family, which means they are closely linked to horses and donkeys. They have big teeth, long limbs, and can move at a fast gallop – perfect for when they need to run saFARi away!

A World full of Wildlife

Why do some animals become extinct? There are many reasons, including pollution, loss of habitat, and climate change. Today, lots of wild animals are in danger of extinction, including rhinos, tigers, and elephants.

Want to do your bit to help conserve wildlife? One thing you can do is reuse old items and recycle what you can. For example, you could pass on your animal toys to your little brothers and sisters. You could also adopt an animal online or even volunteer at a wildlife refuge – why not check if there are any near you? Tiny steps can make a big impact!
