Grevy's Zebras are considered the most endangered of the world's three surviving zebra species today.
This, as well as other African wild-range animals like Giraffes and antelopes, is part of the rehabilitation project responding the request of Kenyan government to help in saving wildlife threatened by war and drought. In 1976, by virtue of Proclamation #1578, the 3700 hectares of Calauit Island in Palawan Philippines was declared a game reserve and wildlife sanctuary - a vast location perfectly secluded for these animals due to its size, terrain, and vegetation.
Visiting the island has become more accessible to tourists from Coron proper / Busuanga airport since its opening for public as an eco-tourism attraction in 2009. And I personally recommend this on your itineraries. More than the experience of seeing animals I used to imagine only in Madagascar movies or NatGeo clips, it's oddly satisfying when you know that a portion of tour fees can help in maintaining their new-found habitat.
Together, we can preserve tropic wildlife! "It will not be just a taste of Africa. It will be wild Africa in our midst. "
Note that the park also features other Philippine endemic wildlife. Not caged and roaming around freely.
