Scientists in Kenya say the northern white rhino is one step away from being saved from extinction.
On Thursday they successfully carried out a ground-breaking procedure of harvesting eggs from the world’s only two surviving female northern white rhinos.
Sperm saved from the last living male northern white rhino called Sudan and a few others will be used to inseminate the eggs in an attempt to save the species.
