Today, Disney’s Animal Kingdom is celebrating the births of two female Grevy’s zebra foals! Laylee was the first foal born on April 26th and Zuri was the second foal born on May 1st. The foals are both nursing and bonding with their mother backstage. Momma and babies will soon join the rest of the herd on Gorilla Falls Exploration Trail overlook soon.
Originating from Africa, Grevy’s zebras are the most endangered species of zebra, with approximately 2,500 in the world. So as you can imagine, these zebra births mark another success for Disney’s animal care experts and the Species Survival Plan, a program through the Association of Zoos and Aquariums that helps ensure a diverse, healthy population of threatened and endangered species. These zebra foals are making an important contribution toward the worldwide conservation and understanding of the Grevy’s species, which will help ensure a future generation for these endangered animals.
