Conservation Workers Even Use A Wonderful Set Of Clothes To Care For A Baby Zebra

Recently the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (with 40 years of pioneering experience in Kenya and Africa) rescued a baby zebra named Diria. They explained that she had lost her mother in an unfortunate attack by lions. They usually update the conditions of the animals they care for through their official Facebook account.

Aime (shelter representative) stated: “We have no further updates at this time other than a list of experienced caretakers who continue to look after her, which includes providing food for milk, ensuring she has a warm stable to sleep in at night and a protective ‘mother’ presence during the day,” the caretaker said.

She highlighted something else besides the precious images of Diria.It was about the clothes of her caregivers.

“Baby zebras need to be able to recognize their mother from birth to survive. To know her mother’s stripes, a zebra mother often separates herself and her baby from the herd so that the baby can recognize and follow her coat, smell and call. Once the baby can identify its mother, the duo will return to the herd,” said Amie, a representative of the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.

“In the wild, calves are raised only by their mother, but in our Reintegration Unit, it’s not practical for a single person to raise one if they go on annual vacation. Therefore, to avoid this fragile impression of the newborn on a person, our Guardians wear a specially made striped coat so that Diria will recognize them as her ‘mother’, regardless of who is wearing it. A team of caregivers can provide Diria with the 24/7 specialized care she needs to give her the best chance of survival,” Amie continued.

These special clothes will help the baby zebra gain confidence and make it easier for the animal to adapt. It is simply beautiful and speaks to the care they have for the species here. It is really a wonderful decision.
