17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Burchell's Zebra

The Burchell’s Zebras are one of South Africa’s most dominant and present species. Each individual Zebra has unique markings, acting in similar fashion as fingerprints in humans. They are the closest relative to the Quagga Zebra, which roamed the plains of southern Africa until its extinction in the 1900s. Let’s keep our planet in balance, let’s keep our unique stripy Burchell’s Zebras, and let’s prevent another extinction, while we still can.
