North American and European okapi nutrition advisors collected information on and compared okapi diets fed in North American and European zoos. The data also were compared with available data from studies of captive okapi offered natural food items in the Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Zaire). Based on these findings and other information described in that paper, recommendations for feeding okapis are being provided to the Okapi SSP.
