Northern white rhino’s death leaves only three of its kind in Kenya

What you need to know:

  • Efforts to conserve the near-extinct species now remain uncertain as only three are now left on earth.
  • The future of the subspecies now lies in the development of In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) techniques and stem cell technology which are costly and complicated procedures that have never before been attempted before in rhinos.
  • Ol Pejeta Conservancy together with Dvůr Králové Zoo is now trying to raise USD1 million to assist in the research aimed at conserving the northern white rhino through a campaign dubbed ‘Make a Rhino’.

One of the four surviving endangered northern white rhinos has died at a San Diego zoo in the United States.
