Mountain zebras have been listed as vulnerable specie by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. This means this specie is likely to become endangered unless the factors that are threatening its survival and reproduction are improved.

However, the plain zebras are not vulnerable or endangered. There are much more numerous and they have a healthy population.
