I've been following the plight of the Northern White Rhino for several years, and was deeply saddened when the last surviving male Sudan, passed away in 2018. Leaving behind only two females left in the world, neither of whom is capable of bearing children, even though Sudans sperm had been preserved before his death.  There is hope though, as recently scientists created 5 viable embryos from the sperm, and the eggs of the two remaining females, Najin and Fatu.  The plan is to impregnate Southern White Rhino (close relative species) surrogates with the embryos and bring the Northern White Rhino species back from the brink of extinction.  It's a risky process, but one that could be used to save other species as well if this goes as planned.

The photo of the armed guards watching over Sudan 24/7 has haunted me since the first time I saw it.  That we as humans would push a species to extinction through greed is incomprehensible to me, and that only with it's dying breath, humans decide to finally step in and do something.

The problem is, humans need to be proactive and NOT force extinction on any species, ever.  The Northern White Rhino is at this stage due solely to the greed of humans and the harvesting of the Rhinos horns, and now scientists are rushing for a way to try to save the species.  This is the story of far too many endangered animals on the planet, forced to the point of extinction by humans, and then humans have to come to the rescue.  We are better than this, and need to end the needless slaughter of animals for human consumption, and the greed of profit.  Once all of these animals are gone, they won't come back, and then where will we be?
