Endangered Tasmanian Devils
New Herd of Grevy’s Zebras
5333 Zoo Drive
And, while you’re at the Los Angeles Zoo, take time to see the endangered male Tasmanian devils, the world’s largest carnivorous marsupial. The L.A. Zoo is one of only four zoos in the United States to house Tasmanian devils in its animal collection.
The L.A. Zoo participates in a Conservation Ambassador Program, in partnership with the Save the Tasmanian Devil Program, in hopes of making Zoo visitors aware of this species’ conservation needs. The Tasmanian devil population has declined over 60 percent in the last 10 years due to major survival threats caused by a large number of road kills, dog kills, being hunted by foxes, persecution by humans, low genetic diversity, and other diseases. Perhaps the largest factor responsible for the species’ decline is a fatal, infectious cancer known as Devil Facial Tumor Disease (DFTD), a rapidly spreading condition among the Tasmanian devil population.
Also new at the zoo, four Grevy’s zebras. The new herd, consisting of one male, four years old from the Bronx Zoo, and three females, all two years old and younger and from the Jacksonville Zoo and the Oglebay Park Good Zoo, were sent to the L.A. Zoo as part of a breeding recommendation from the Association of Zoo’s and Aquarium’s (AZA) Species Survival Program. The L.A. Zoo hopes the new group will interact positively and lead to offspring that would help educate guests about the continually declining population of this species in the wild.
The Grevy’s zebra, the largest of the three species of zebra, is easily distinguished from plain and mountain zebras due to their larger frame, thin striping patterns, giant round ears, and white belly. Found in the deserts of northern Kenya and Ethiopia, the Grevy’s zebra population is rapidly declining, estimated at less than 2,500 left in the wild, due to habitat loss, reduction of available water sources, overgrazing and competition from domesticated animals, and hunting.
