Marking the Stripes

Kenneth Uiseb is a Conservation Scientist working on a research project that is seeking to uncover more about Zebra’s in Namibia. With different species of Zebra in Namibia, including the endemic and protected Hartmann’s Mountain Zebra, the Mountain Zebra Project is seeking to uncover more about the species and the role Zebra’s play in the wider ecosystem.

Zebras are fascinating animals and just as no two human fingerprints are alike, no two zebras have the same stripe pattern.

In this episode of the MYD Earth Show, we find out about the different types of species of Zebra in Namibia and the latest on the research into a possible hybrid species.

Kenneth also shares here about a citizen scientist project where we are all be asked to help the Mountain Zebra Project, through documenting the Zebra’s we see in Namibia and sharing these photographs with the research team that is collected data on Namibian Zebras. Share your pictures here
