International Zebra Day 2023  History 

January 31st, the world recognizes International Day of the Zebra. On this day, we celebrate our own zebra dazzle: individuals living with Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) and hypermobility spectrum disorders (HSD)

International Zebra Day was founded to raise awareness about the conservation of zebra populations and their habitats, as well as to promote the importance of protecting these species for future generations. The day serves as an opportunity for individuals and organizations to educate others about the challenges facing zebra populations, such as habitat loss, poaching, and hunting.
