It was 2:00 a.m., and Lekureya was returning home when he came upon two terrified Grevy’s zebras, a mother and her foal, encircled by hungry hyenas. Under normal circumstances, Lekureya—a Grevy’s Zebra Warrior—would have let nature take its course (after all, hyenas have to eat too). But as a Warrior, he also knew that Grevy’s zebra populations were so low that each individual animal was precious. He had to at least try to save them. So Lekureya shouted… so loudly that he not only scared the hyenas away, he also woke his fellow Warriors at the Grevy’s Zebra Trust (GZT) patrol base camp, who rushed over to help.
