Become a citizen scientist and count these amazing animals in northern Kenya! Details on how to register coming soon.
In the late 1970's there were an estimated 15,000 Grevy's zebra in the wild. They underwent one of the most dramatic declines of any large mammal in Africa- only 2,000 individuals existed in the early 1990’s. Through conservation efforts, the wild population has risen, and is stable, at 3,000 individuals globally - 2,812 are found only in Kenya. Under threat from habitat degradation, infrastructure development and limited access to water, the Grevy’s zebra population needs to be counted every two years to understand whether our conservation efforts are having an impact.
A citizen scientist is a member of the public that contributes to scientific research under the guidance of professional scientists. The Great Grevy's Rally is a unique opportunity for citizen scientists to contribute to the preservation of an endangered species. Be a part of the national census of Grevy's zebra that is using photography and citizen scientists. All you need is four wheels and a sense of adventure!
The Great Grevy’s Ball is a celebration of the results of our national effort to census one of the planet’s most endangered mammals – the Grevy’s zebra. It is a celebration of the partnerships that have been built through the most major citizen science effort ever undertaken in Kenya. We celebrate an icon of conservation, people and landscape. We celebrate the Grevy’s zebra.
