Kenyan scientists harvest eggs to save northern white rhinos

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.

    • Toad 1 says:

      Fool, most poachers live on the same land they poach off of. They only poach because of poverty, if you ban outsiders or immigrants from ones land, they wont have a better life. Thats like saying pioneers cant discover/live in America, they have a purpose. They only want to have a better life.

  • Eagles Fan Keepingitreal says:

    The Chinese and their backwater sudo-science on mystical benefits of animal parts are fueling and excelling the extinction of numerous African species. Why isn’t UN driving this point home? It is the Chinese who incentives the poachers in Africa.

  • RedBunny says:

    one day there will be nothing left to poach, and what then will humans hunt for their idiotic superstitions?

  • KingDavid TV says:

    Why am I not surprised. With the state of the world today, no wonder these amazing animals grow extinct. Instead of nurturing the earth we suffocate it with buildings, shopping malls, subdivisions and other luxurious useless shits nobody can afford. I’m so disappointed of us humans. Such a shame because God fought for us to be here

  • Kyle Choy says:

    Breed them back into the wild!

  • Hawkeye1off1 Hawk says:

    They are called Wide lipped rhino’s, english got lost in translation. The word WIDE in south Afrikaans is misinterpreted to english as white. The rhino is not white but grey, so why is it still called white rhino. Mandella effect.

  • Prinzessin Nature says:

    Humans trying to find life in Space, while destroying the life Earth already has.
    Hypocrisy at it’s finest!

  • Dalea Lugo says:

    These poachers need to realize that these animals are to be given relief. Give them a lifetime to rebound in numbers.

  • Sinister Fox says:

    I thought all the white rhinos were already extinct I’m glad they are still alive but endangered species

  • CCw says:


  • Planet Tyler says:

    This is a complete waste of time, even if they can successfully impregnate these IVF embryos into a surrogate the species is still extinct as they do not have the genetic diversity to keep on breeding. This is true of many species that conservationists waste money and resources trying to save when they could be focussing on animals that have the genetic diversity to be saved. People need to understand that a species is genetically extinct long before there are no actual animals of that species left alive.
