Why Are zebras endangered!

Poaching is the cause of this animal becoming an endangered species. They where over hunted and then kenya banned poaching of zebras but the population is not getting back up. it was poached for fashion and now you can only find them in north eastern and a few reserves in Kenya. Now that they are safe in reserves there is another problem about loss of land and resources. They are in competition with other live stock and the growth of cities and population. They aren't provided with enough resources to survive on there own.
