July 2018: Okapi

Okapi (Okapia johnstoni)

Throughout the month of July, FaunaFocus will feature the elusive forest giraffe, otherwise known as the okapi! This unusual animal is revered for its striking markings, especially the horizontal black and white stripes found on its legs. This hooved mammal is listed as “Endangered” by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.



Create art inspired by the okapi and share it in the FaunaFocus Discord Server or on social media with #faunafocus. Learn about more ways to get involved with FaunaFocus!
