This week, she tells us
Tomorrow is International Zebra Day, a day to bring awareness to zebras, their living conditions, and how the three remaining types in the wild can be protected. One type, Grèvy’s is endangered, its numbers rapidly lessening due to poaching for their pelts. More than 54% of its total population has been lost.

One of Africa‘s beauties,
Soon to be seen only in bookstores, or
Pictures in puzzle books.
Calls upon a luminary Elder,
One who sees a revolutionary
Need to introduce a reproduction program
In grandiose captivity
Before they disappear into obscurity.
Not cuddly or woolly pets,
These striped creatures are unique
And should roam free in the wild
With no borders.

Good use of the words…well done.
Oh, I do hope not only in pictures in books and puzzles. Great use of those words! A lot of things today need the help of a luminary elder, don’t they?
I think so. Mankind is destroying habitat for the wild animals for greed.
All these years later, I still don’t believe that people really kill animals for their skin. There was a time — years ago — when I didn’t get it, but I was a kid back then. I’ve learned a lot since then and the idea of slaughtering ANYTHING for its pelt is sickening. How can anyone DO that?
I know how you feel Marilyn.
I saw them in Zimbabwe, they were majestic creatures
I’ve only seen them in a zoo or wildlife park. I got to touch a giraffe in the latter and their ‘fur’ is like velvet.
I didn’t know that, they’re so cute
Horses with pyjamas on, as my sister would call them 🙂
Yep. I find it fascinating that like dalmation dogs, no two will have identical markings.
