Story

We need your help to save the Grevy's Zebra population in remote Northern Kenya during the ongoing drought by providing urgently needed supplementary hay.

The rains have failed repeatedly, forage has disappeared in many areas and rivers are drying up. This means very long trips between grazing and water sources for this endangered species. Lactating females and foals are particularly affected by the prolonged drought as the mothers need to drink daily to provide milk, but the foals are not strong enough for the extra long walks.

Marwell Wildlife works closely with the Kenya Wildlife Service and after a thorough assessment of the forage and water situation, we have received permission to provide much needed supplementary feeding in three locations in South Horr in Northern Kenya. This should prevent the animals from losing body condition which can lead to increased disease or even death.

Working with the Grevy's Zebra Trust, we need to buy 500 bales of hay and transfer them on lorries to the remote areas that desperately need it. Other costs include paying for local scouts to store, distribute and regularly monitor the hay and its intake by Grevy's zebra and other wildlife.

Every Pound Helps!

£10 can buy 5 bales of hay. Enough to feed up to 10 Grevy's zebra for 4 days

£20 can pay for a scouts salary for a week to monitor and distribute the hay

£250 can buy fuel to transfer hay to remote areas

£7000 can pay for the whole project for three months
