This year's FLL Project is "Animal Allies" and Team 7407 C.A.K.E. B.A.T.T.E.R.S. picked the Zebra as their animal as this is a favorite animal of one of the team members. As we consulted our resident expert we found that the zebra population is shrinking in Africa. Further investigation we found out that the Africa Ranchers livestock and the zebra are wanting to inhabit the same land and unfortunately the zebra is loosing the battle. So our quest was to find a use for the zebra.
