Due to very little interest in keeping of Maneless zebras from side of EAZA and european zoos, Czech and Slovak zoos have agreed to run their own managed breeding program some time ago. Local zoos are phasing out other zebra subspecies to dedicate more available space for Maneless zebras. In whole Europe less than 40 of these zebras survive. That is too low to keep them long-term so this is a last attempt to build a sustainable captive population. Wild Maneless zebras survive only in Uganda, with estimated population of 100-400 spread over several parks. Who keeps maneless zebras: Dvůr Králové - this zoo organized the initial catch and importation of founding animals from Africa in 1969 and has kept an internal studbook of all plain zebras in Czechoslovakia ever since. Breeds them uninterrupted for 50 years. Altogether only 10 of the wild-caught zebras have become founders of whole today´s zoo population. Liberec and Zlín - both have them for a long time, but have just small breeding herds (1-3 mares). Prague - keeps a small herd since 2018 when it phased out their Grant's zebras. Košice - started with a bachelor herd in 2019, very important step to increase spare capacity for stallions so that other zoos can exchange them more frequently. Bojnice - just now phased out Chapmans and replaced them with 1,1 Maneless zebras from Poland (Borysew). Plzeň - plans to phase out their Chapmans and start a larger breeding herd. Brno - plans to replace Chapmans and start with Maneless zebras. Edit - could a mod correct my typo in the thread headline?
