Wildlife Conservation

  • Protecting an astounding diversity of species
  • Africa is home to certain species that are facing extinction, Grevy’s zebras. By putting safeguards in place like training rangers, using sniffer dogs, and empowering communities, local authorities are helping to ensure Africa’s wildlife survives. Critical to protecting Africa’s wildlife are the local people. Sharing the land, often alongside each other, can lead to struggles for resources and deforestation. If people and wildlife learn to live together—inside and outside of protected areas—the future for all will thrive.

    We at Zebrahide.com are located in Richards Bay, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa and surrounded by many small, medium and large Game Reserves. Some of these game reserves are hunting reserves that breed Game animals such as Zebra for commercial purposes and as there is a monetary value associated with these Game these farmers continue to increase their stock supply. The funds obtained from the sale of live Zebra, bringing in hunters for trophy hunts, the sale of meat to the meat industry both locally and internationally and the sale of hides and horns inject much needed money back to these farmers who in turn create employment and sustain the population of game animals in Southern Africa.

    We work with these farmers as well as government conservation authorities and buy/sell and trade in these hides thus injecting funds to continual efforts needed to conserve our wildlife.

  • Fun Fact

  • Why do zebras have stripes at all?
  • Scientists aren't sure, but many theories center on their utility as some form of camouflage.
  • The patterns may make it difficult for predators to identify a single animal from a running herd and distort distance at dawn and dusk.
  • Or they may dissuade insects that recognize only large areas of single-colored fur or act as a kind of natural sunscreen.
  • Because of their uniqueness, stripes may also help zebras recognize one another
