Zebra Pen gives its namesake a hand

By ,

Zebra Pen Corporation, based in Edison, announced Monday that it was making a $15,000 donation to support conservation of Grevy’s zebras in Africa.

The maker of writing instruments, in conjunction with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and AZA-accredited zoos around the U.S., is holding “Z Month” in June. One of the ways in which the organizations are celebrating is by helping to preserve the endangered Grevy’s zebras, whose numbers have shrunk from 15,000 in the 1980s to fewer than 2,500 today, according to a Zebra Pen news release.

Zebra Pen’s gift will support the Grevy’s Zebra Trust, the only organization dedicated to saving these particular animals.

“We are excited to announce our partnership with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and AZA-accredited zoos,” Ken Newman, director of marketing at Zebra Pen, said in the release. “At Zebra Pen we are proud to support the animal that represents and identifies our company. Through this partnership and our Z Month celebration, we are also providing our consumers and zoo and aquarium visitors with the opportunity to play a part in Grevy’s zebra conservation efforts.”

Other Z Month activities include zoo ticket giveaways and educational facts posted on Facebook.
