Mountain Zebra National Park Anniversary - follow on webcam 31 July : 09:30

Unread post by DinkyBird » Sun Jul 30, 2017 3:01 pm

It is time to CELEBRATE! To celebrate conservation management success!

The downlisting of the Cape Mountain zebra species off the endangered list at COP17 in 2016 signaled 80 years of successfully conserving this species within MZNP.

Mountain Zebra National Park (MZNP) is situated just outside the town of Cradock in the Eastern Cape. It was proclaimed on 3 July 1937 for the purpose of protecting a remnant population of the Cape mountain zebra (Equus zebra zebra). At the time, it was estimated that fewer than 100 Cape mountain zebra survived in South Africa.
