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’.

Nola, one of the last four northern white rhinos in the world, died

Date: 23.11.2015

Northern white rhino female Nola had to be euthanized at San Diego Zoo Safari Park on Sunday. Nola was one of only four northern white rhinos left in the world. Dvůr Králové Zoo is the only zoo where northern white rhinos have ever bred and thus the zoo prolonged their presence on the planet. To enhance breeding, Dvůr Králové Zoo provided San Diego Zoo with its three rhinos including Nola almost 25 years ago. In 2009 Dvůr Králové Zoo sent to custody in a Kenyan conservancy another four rhinos. Unfortunately, in both cases an attempt at natural reproduction failed.
