Like many animals, there are different types of animals in each species. Therefore, it is difficult or even wrong to say that the zebras are endangered because there are different kinds of zebras. Depending on the type of zebra, that depends on whether it is endangered or not. In general it is not believed that the zebra is endangered. However, the Grevy’s zebra is considered to be endangered, but the plain zebras you see are not.
There are a few types of zebras that are vulnerable which means that they are close to being endangered. These are known as the Hartmann’s zebra and the mountain zebra. The number of these zebras left on the planet is dwindling or it has decreased.
They may not be listed as endangered (yet) but Greby's zebra particularly is at risk. They depend on available foliage. This is reducing as result of land reclamation. Their rangeland is already depleted and degraded, while climate change reduces their feeding possibilities.
As to the plains zebra, they are shot by rogues for their skins. Otherwise their biggest threats are also habitat loss due to ranching and farming. Further, they have to compete for water with livestock.
Have keen interest in writing, traveller by heart.
Gre’vy’s zebra is endangered. This is due to hunting of these animals and loss of their habitat. They are primarily hunted for their striking skins and are occasionally killed for food in some regions.
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.
