The zebra is one of the animals most synonymous with African wildlife and yet one that's so often overlooked.
Personally, I never pass up a chance to watch these beautiful equids - I find their behaviours fascinating and you never know when a photographic opportunity will present itself! Plus, their black and white coats and the pattern of their stripes can be challenging, so trying to create a captivating photo of zebras is a challenge for me.
Whilst it may look adorable, this 'hugging' behaviour is very useful and is often exhibited by zebra. Rather than making themself vulnerable to attack by predators when they lie down to sleep, zebras can rest standing up. This hug position alleviates the strain from their neck whilst allowing the individuals to remain vigilant and spot any approaching carnivores!

Why Lewa Wildlife Conservancy?
Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is a private reserve in the centre of Kenya. Originally founded as a rhino sanctuary in 1983, Lewa's rhino population has grown from 15 founding individuals to over 169 rhinos today. Lewa now holds 14% of Kenya's rhino population and is a leading pioneer in rhino conservation. By providing a suitable and safe habitat for threatened wildlife, Lewa has also enabled other key African species to thrive, including the critically endangered Grevy's zebra, elephants, lions, wild dogs, cheetah, the critically endangered Pancake tortoise and many more...
I have a masters in Wildlife Conservation and my thesis investigated black rhinos. I spent 7 months researching the black rhino population on Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and I worked with some of the most inspiring, passionate and amazing people that I have ever met. I have witnessed first-hand the incredible work that is conducted on Lewa: vital scientific research, cutting-edge anti-poaching strategies, working closely with the local communities and providing educational outreach programmes to the surrounding schools. Lewa is truly a catalyst for conservation.
20% of all profits will be donated to the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, specifically to the Research & Monitoring Department - my home for seven months, and a department whose work is vital for the conservation of several critically endangered species across the landscape.
