Reproduction and stem cell researchers set up a rescue plan for Northern White Rhino

Date: 22.12.2015

International scientists set up a rescue plan for the worldwide last three northern white rhinos (Ceratotherium simum cottoni). The goal is to use the remaining three rhinos and tissue samples from already dead individuals to multiply them into a viable self-sustaining population. For this purpose scientists apply recent findings in reproduction and stem cell research.

And Then There Were Three

Date: 24.11.2015

Nola, a female northern white rhino in San Diego Zoo, died aged 41 on Sunday 22nd November. This leaves just three remaining on the planet; all of them live in Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Kenya. The future of this species now lies in the development of in vitro fertilisation techniques and stem cell technology, costly and complicated procedures that have never before been attempted in rhinos. Dvur Kralove Zoo is together with Ol Pejeta Conservancy trying to raise USD 1 million towards this with a Gofundme campaign called ‘Make a Rhino’.
