  • Health of world’s last male northern white rhino in decline

    The 45-year-old rhino named Sudan, listed as “The Most Eligible Bachelor in the World” on the Tinder dating app last year as a fundraiser, lives with the last two female northern white rhinos. Kenya’s Ol Pejeta Conservancy said Thursday that Sudan was struggling despite 24-hour care by veterinarians.

    Sudan appeared to recover well from an infection that developed on his back right leg at the end of 2017 but another, deeper infection was recently discovered in the same area, the conservancy said

        makes you wonder how they actually let a population get down to just that few - sad

            I'm in for a
            poacher huntingclub.
            I'd pay the ticket etc, I'd just need to convince my boss..
            But a good reason to train the skills and drills.

              think of the Tasmanian Tiger...they actually have movies made of a live Tas Tiger (not just still photos) it was that recent and yet they are supposedly extinct (yes I am aware ppl claim to have seen them recently on mainland and tassy) Amongst other extinct animals worldwide now..

                  I'd be happy to be a part of that effort.

                    On the bright side if this was only a few years ago there would have been no chance of saving them.

                        Aaaaaaaand it's gone.

                        World's last white male is gone.
                        Only some females left now, that they're gonna breed with the southern Rhino populations to at least somehow carry on the genes.
                        Europeans take notes from that
