18th October is World Okapi Day! Meet the bizarre half-giraffe-half-zebra, endemic to the rainforests of DR Congo, that rocks striped pants like nobody else! Comic from my column with The Hindu Sunday magazine.
Okapis are endangered, having endured poaching, hunting, habitat loss, and collateral damage from armed conflict in the region. The Okapi Conservation Project works towards the conservation of this beautiful, gentle ungulate.
