Zebra rescue, Kwanza

Kwanza was spotted on the 1st of January, as the foal was on its own following a herd of cattle within the Enduimet Wildlife Management Area (WMA). The Warden was contacted and he got hold of the C.R.E.W. who immediately sent a car to rescue this little foal. Being the first rescue of the new year, it was named Kwanza.

At the Center on the 2nd of January 2021, it was established that Kwanza is a little filly, at the most a month old and weighing just above 20 kg which is entire 5 kg less than Engerai, another little zebra, when he arrived! She really was tiny! She was put on to foal milk on demand and electrolytes for rehydration – and she started to drink very well!

She walked a bit awkwardly, as her back legs were somewhat x-shaped and not stable or strong. We hoped she would simply outgrow this.
