See the picture below and yes it is the last male Northern White Rhino in the world (Sudan) and he lives in a reserve in Kenya called the Ol Pejeta Conservancy located in Sudan. The facts are that we have two other female white rhinos but they are too old to reproduce. Also, the sperm count of male white rhino is too low. It is really sad what we have done to our nature and how one by one we moving different species to extinction.

Daniel Schneider, activist and biologist tweet is an eye opener for each and everyone of us and even our government that give us a message, we need to act now. We need to take every single to protect our forests and clean our oceans. The way we are ignoring things right now will turn out to be very deadly for our future generations. Nature is giving us signals at every single point that to play with him like we humans are doing or else results will be very bad for all of us and for every species that lives on this beautiful planet.

Northern White Rhino are being poached for Horns and that is the reason Sudan don’t have horns just to protect him from poachers.Also, a 24*7 bodyguard has been provided by Sudan government to give him more protection. But we are too late, there are numerous steps that can be taken to protect our white Rhinos. This is very sad news!
Animals are one of oldest species that live on this planet, However, Humans came and they are defining survival of the fittest to a new level wherein we are making species extinct by our activities and fulfilling our selfish needs.
Scientist of various countries trying in-Virto fertilization to protect some sperm from Northern White Rhino.It is also called stem cell technology. Mohammed Doyo, one of the Sudan’s caretaker, said, “We can watch him getting older, and it’s sad for us.”
Let me tell you few facts about Rhinoceroses,
- Rhinoceros are herbivorous mammals and their name derived from Greek “rhino” means “nose” and “ceros” means “horn”.
- Nature have given us 5 species and 11 subspecies of rhino and some of them have two horns and some of them have one.
- Horns of Rhino have some healing properties and they are hunted nearly to extinction for making medicines.Also, Horns are sold as decorations.
- There are 500,000 rhinos across Africa and Asia during the 20th century. Now, we only 29,000 rhinos.
Black rhinos, Sumatran rhinos, and Javan rhinos are “critically endangered,” which is the list’s highest risk category.
This is a wake call for all of the Humanity, Kindly share your comments, Are we already too late?
