The species is listed as Vulnerable under the IUCN Red List. The Cape Mountain zebra was hunted to near extinction with less than 100 individuals by the 1930s. In 1998 it was estimated that approximately 1,200 Cape mountain zebra survived, of which around 542 occurred in national parks, 491 in provincial nature reserves, and 165 in other reserves. However the population has increased to about over 2,700 in the wild due to conservation efforts. Both Mountain zebra subspecies are currently protected in national parks but are still threatened. There is a European zoo's Endangered Species Program for this zebra as well as co-operative management of zoo populations worldwide. The main threats to the species are from loss of habitat to agriculture, competition with domestic livestock, and hunting. We need your signatures to help raise awareness for this beautiful creature!
