But due to hunting and land degradation, they also happen to be the most endangered zebra on the continent, according to the African Wildlife Foundation. Roughly 2,000 Grevy's zebras exist in the wild today.
Kenya is home to 90% of the remaining wild population, says Funnell, program manager of Grevy's Zebra Trust (GZT) in the Samburu region of northern Kenya. She lives part-time on a GZT basecamp within Grevy's zebra territory, collecting data that is used to advocate for and protect their habitat.

"There are so many stories of species extinctions globally: stories of destruction, of loss of species, of pollution," she says. "It's very difficult to see a thousand years down the line how any species might survive, so you really have to have hope."
