Scientists in Europe Announce a Breakthrough to Rescue the Northern White Rhino

After the devastating death of Sudan earlier this year, this is the news we were waiting for. The first ever hybrid rhino embryo has been successfully created by a consortium of scientific organisations in Europe.
It is a huge breakthrough for the regeneration of the northern white rhinos. Using a southern white rhino egg and northern white rhino sperm, scientists have developed a valid embryo that has a strong chance of surviving to term. This means they have the technology and experience to replicate the procedure with pure northern white rhino genetics.

I remember always being terrified of these little guys, maybe because when I was younger I got chased by one haha but today as I sat in the park and watched them eat and congregate I realized that they want to live and thrive just as much as we do. I guess these thoughts arose from reading and writing an article on the Northern White Rhino, today there are only two female Northern White Rhinos left, they are at the verge of extinction due to decades of rampant poaching. It truly broke my heart... as citizens of the world we must not forget that our footprint matters and that this planet is also their home. 🌎 #northernwhiterhinos #endangeredspecies #planetearth #animallovers #nature #savethenorthernwhiterhinos

Photo by @amivitale. Fatu is one of only two northern white rhinos alive on the planet, following the death of Sudan, the last male northern white rhino who died due to age related complications on March 19th at Ol Pejeta Conservancy (@olpejeta ) in Kenya. Fatu and her mother Najin are the two last of the northern white rhinos remaining in the world and may hold the keys to saving the entire species.
Sudan’s death could mean the extinction of his species, though scientists are considering other options involving Fatu and Najin, including stem cell procedures and harvesting eggs. If there is meaning in Sudan’s passing, it’s that all hope is not lost. This can be our wake-up call. In a world of more than 7 billion people, we must see ourselves as part of the landscape. Our fate is linked to the fate of animals.

Meanwhile. Northern White Rhino got extinct now. How sad it feels when a species extinct in your era. But, we humans doesn't care. Do we? #rhino #kenya #northernwhiterhinos #extinct

Help our work with Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya to care for the last two Northern White Rhinos by becoming a Helping Rhinos Northern White Rhino adopter. Northern White Rhinos – the rarest mammal in the world – are down to the last two members of their species. Najin and Fatu – mother and daughter – reside together on Ol Pejeta, after the death of Sudan, the last male Northern White Rhino who sadly passed away in March 2018. Helping Rhinos is the only organisation in the world where you can adopt these Northern White rhinos, including adopting Sudan in his legacy. Just visit our website for all the details!

I’m totally humbled by the love and dedication of the @olpejeta team who are working diligently to protect the last two northern white rhinos on Earth, pictured here. After the recent death of the last male northern white rhino, Sudan, the team is working with an Italian medical group to ensure the species continues through IVF. Thank you to @jemu_mwenda, a caretaker of the last two females Najin and Fatu, who taught me this: “My worst fear is that we haven’t learned from Sudan’s existence. Northern white rhinos have the right to live just as we do. Free.”

On June 12th, we had the opportunity to visit the last two remaining Northern White Rhinos in the world, the well guarded daughter, Najin, and grand-daughter, Fatu, of the last male Northern White Rhino, Sudan, at Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya. This visit was significantly more educational and emotional than anticipated. I knew the backstory and the incredibly sad circumstances for the rhinos; however, when James Mwenda, one of several very special and caring keepers/rangers/guides that watch over the last remaining Northern White Rhinos, spoke to us about Sudan and the last of these rhinos, his passion really shined through and inspired to say more and do more. James cares so deeply for these animals. When Sudan died on March 19, 2018, James was at his side to comfort him in his final moments, and James told Sudan how very sorry he was that the human race had done this to him and his family before him. He promised Sudan he would spend the rest of his life representing & being the voice of the rhinos. This was the end of the male species of the Northern White Rhino. How does this even happen? The sad truth is that rhino horns are worth more than their weight in gold today. We need to stop the demand, primarily in the Asian market, for medicinal purposes, hang-over remedies, as an aphrodisiac, and for whatever crazy things human beings think ground up rhino horns can fix. Rhinoceros horn is actually made up of the protein, keratin, the same protein your hair and nails are formed. Several African countries, conservancies, and rangers have even gone so far as to sawing off the rhinos’ horns or painting them orange; there are less than 30,000 Southern White Rhino, 5,000 Black rhinos, 3,500 Indian, 100 Sumatran and 60 Javan rhinos remaining in the world. There are about three Rhino deaths per day from poaching; rhinos could conceivably disappear altogether in 27 years. Please speak up for these beautiful animals and support conservancies like Ol Pejeta. @jemu_mwenda #whiterhinos #northernwhiterhinos #rhinos #olpejeta #jemu_mwenda #preservation #saveourrhino #saveourwildlife #conservationphotography #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot #africanwildlifephotography

Ran into some rhinos in MetroTech today. It's a permanent sculpture of 3 Northern White Rhinos: Sudan, Najin and Fatu. Sudan recently died so Najin and Fatu are the last two on earth. This is because they have been hunted for their horns which are valued higher than gold right now. The artists Gillie and Marc Schattner are promoting the cause to fight illegal rhino poaching.

The last Northern White Rhino, Sudan died on 19thMarch, 2018 leaving the world shocked and wondering. Sadly, only two females are alive with no breeding partner for them. But the scientists of German Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research in Berlin have found out a way to bring back the already extinct sub-species by creating a test tube rhino embryo. Let us hope that all goes well for the potential Northern White Rhinos.

We are so excited at the scientific breakthrough that has been made. This brings such hope for the regeneration of the northern white rhino. It seemed like the end with the passing of Sudan but those who are #init4thelongrun continue to strive to make a difference. The development of a viable hybrid embryo is a massive step towards regenerating this species.
We look forward to more news from @olpejeta after eggs have been harvested from Fatu and Najin. .

Scientists in Europe Announce a Breakthrough to Rescue the Northern White Rhino

After the devastating death of Sudan earlier this year, this is the news we were waiting for. The first ever hybrid rhino embryo has been successfully created by a consortium of scientific organisations in Europe.
It is a huge breakthrough for the regeneration of the northern white rhinos. Using a southern white rhino egg and northern white rhino sperm, scientists have developed a valid embryo that has a strong chance of surviving to term. This means they have the technology and experience to replicate the procedure with pure northern white rhino genetics.

Only a few months after our dear Sudan died, this is some real amazing news which could mean the recovery of his species. While it will never be the same without him, I dream of a day when his “son” or “daughter” roams the plains of Ol Pejeta. Maybe that day is closer than I thought.

Cutest Video by @amivitale Elephants enjoy a mud bath at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e). These elephants are being cared for by members of the local community. “We take care of the elephants, and the elephants are taking care of us. We now have a relationship between us.” In the wake of Sudan's death, I remain hopeful because of places like this where communities are coming together to protect what is left.
I have launched a print sale of the last of the northern white rhinos with 100% of the proceeds going to @olpejeta so that they can continue on their mission of protecting and fighting for some of the world's most vulnerable creatures.

Photo by @amivitale With a heavy heart, I share this news and hope that Sudan's legacy will awaken us to protect this magnificent and fragile planet. Yesterday, wildlife ranger Joseph Wachira, 26 comforted Sudan, the last living male Northern White Rhino left on this planet moments before he passed away. Sudan lived a long, healthy life at the conservancy after he was brought to Kenya from @safari_park_dvur_kralov in the #Czechrepublic in 2009. He died surrounded by people who loved him at @olpejeta after suffering from age-related complications that led to degenerative changes in muscles and bones combined with extensive skin wounds. Sudan has been an inspirational figure for many across the world. Thousands have trooped to Ol Pejeta to see him and he has helped raise awareness for rhino conservation. The two female northern white rhinos left on the planet are his direct descendants. Research into new Assisted Reproductive Techniques for large mammals is underway due to him. The impact that this special animal has had on conservation is simply incredible. And there is still hope in the future that the subspecies might be restored through IVF.
In 2009, I had the privilege of following this gentle hulking creature on his journey from the snowy Dvur Krulov zoo in the Czech Republic to the warm plains of Kenya, when he was transported with three of his fellow Northern White Rhinos in a last ditch effort to save the subspecies. It was believed that the air, water, and food, not to mention room to roam, might stimulate them to breed—and the offspring would then be used to repopulate Africa. At the time, there were 8 Northern white rhinos alive, all in zoos. Today, we are witnessing the extinction of a species that had survived for millions of years but could not survive mankind. Follow @olpejeta and @amivitale to learn more what we can all do to #coexist.

Photo by @amivitale. In December 2009, I heard about a plan to airlift four of the last Northern White Rhinos from a zoo in the Czech Republic back to Africa. It sounded like a storyline for a Disney film but in reality, it was a desperate, last ditch effort to save an entire species. Back then, there were only eight of these gentle, hulking creatures alive, all in zoos. This image is one of the rhinos leaving the zoo forever on a cold, snowy night. They landed and were brought to roam “free” on the savannas of Kenya at Ol Pejeta Conservancy (@olpejeta). The hope was then to breed them. The air, water, and food, not to mention room to roam, might stimulate them to breed—and the offspring would then be used to repopulate Africa. On March 19th, Sudan, the last living male Northern White Rhino passed away. He lived a long, healthy life at the conservancy and died surrounded by people who loved him after suffering from age-related complications that led to degenerative changes in muscles and bones combined with extensive skin wounds.

Poaching is not slowing down, and it’s entirely possible, even likely, that if the current trajectory of killing continues, rhinos, along with elephants and a host of lesser known plains animals, will be functionally extinct in our lifetime.

Photo by @amivitale. ‪The passing of Sudan, the last male northern white rhino, was really hard on all of his keepers. They’d fallen in love with him. They say they wake up in the morning and see the rhinos often before they see their own children. They say, ‘These are our babies.’‬ These keepers are the real heroes, the men and women protecting all of these species. They are the ones, often with very little, making huge impacts in their communities and the planet. We can often forget that the best protectors of these landscapes are the local communities themselves. Their efforts to preserve community cohesion is ultimately the best immunization against forces that threaten both their wildlife and way of life.

Last week, I made a heartbreaking journey back to Kenya to say goodbye to Sudan, the world's LAST male northern white rhino alive on the planet. Sudan lived a long and good life and he was surrounded by love, with the people who committed their lives to protecting him, like those at @olpejeta and the Dvůr Králové Zoo (@safari_park_dvur_Kralove). Sudan’s death could mean the extinction of his species, but if there is meaning in Sudan’s passing, it’s that all hope is not lost. This can be our wake-up call. In a world of more than 7 billion people, we must see ourselves as part of the landscape. Our fate is linked to the fate of animals.

The plight of wildlife and the conflict between poachers and increasingly militarized rangers has received much-needed attention. But very little has been said about the indigenous communities on the front lines of the poaching wars, and the incredible work being done to strengthen them. We often forget that the best protectors of these landscapes are the local communities. Their efforts are ultimately the best immunization against forces that threaten both their wildlife and way of life. My hope is that Sudan’s legacy serves as a catalyst to awaken humanity to this reality.

Photo by @amivitale. Fatu is one of only two northern white rhinos alive on the planet, following the death of Sudan, the last male northern white rhino who died due to age related complications on March 19th at Ol Pejeta Conservancy (@olpejeta) in Kenya. Fatu and her mother Najin are the last of the species remaining in the world and may hold the keys to saving the entire species.
Sudan’s death could mean the extinction of his species, though scientists are considering other options involving Fatu and Najin, including stem cell procedures and harvesting eggs. If there is meaning in Sudan’s passing, it’s that all hope is not lost. This can be our wake-up call. In a world of more than 7 billion people, we must see ourselves as part of the landscape.

Photo by @amivitale. Fatu, one of the last two northern white rhinos alive on the planet, nuzzles her keeper, James Mwenda, at Ol Pejeta Conservancy (@olpejeta). Fatu is the granddaughter of Sudan, the last male northern white rhino on the planet who passed away on March 19th due to age related complications.

We must see ourselves as part of the landscape. Our fate is linked to the fate of animals. “Humanity has brought the northern white rhino to the edge of extinction because it has slaughtered the animal for its horn,” said project scientist Jan Stejskal, a conservation researcher based at (@safari_park_dvur_Kralove) Dvůr Králové Zoo in the Czech Republic. “We have a duty to try to save it, no matter how hard that is going to be.” Scientists believe they can bring the species back from the brink of extinction using IVF and stem cell science. The IVF plan involves creating embryos and implanting them in surrogate mothers from a closely related sub-species, the southern white rhino, which is not endangered.
Whether science can save the species is unknown but my hope is that Sudan's legacy can be a HUGE wake up call for all of us. We can all make impacts in our own small ways for a world of co existence.

Photo by @amivitale. Najin relaxes with a flock of oxpecker on her back. The oxpecker rest on the back of rhino, ridding them of pests like ticks, flies and other bugs and give off loud warning hisses when they see danger, providing a kind of alarm system, while also taking little sips of blood from the large mammal.

Najin is the daughter of Sudan, the last male white rhino who passed away on Mar. 19, and the mother of Fatu. Najin and Fatu are the last northern white rhino in all the world. Along with Sudan, they were transported from the Dvůr Králové Zoo (@safari_park_dvur_Kralove) in the Czech Republic to Ol Pejeta Conservancy (@olpejeta) in Kenya’s plains in a last ditch effort to encourage them to breed and save the species. The air, water, and food, not to mention room to roam, might stimulate them to breed—and the offspring would then be used to repopulate Africa. At the time there were eight northern white rhino in the world. Now there are two.
Yet all hope is not lost. Scientists believe they can bring the species back from the brink of extinction using IVF and stem cell science and are working toward that end. Whether science can save the species is unknown but my hope is that Sudan's legacy can be a HUGE wake up call for all of us. We can all make impacts in our own small ways for a world of co existence.

I have launched a print sale of the last of the northern white rhinos with 100% of the proceeds going to @olpejeta so that they can continue on their mission of protecting and fighting for some of the world's most vulnerable creatures. Visit the link in my profile to learn more and purchase a print. We must see ourselves as part of the landscape. Our fate is linked to the fate of animals. We can all make impacts in our own small ways for a world of co existence.  Please support initiatives like @r.e.s.c.u.e @nrt_kenya @lewa_wildlife @tusk_org@kenyawildlifeservice @nature_org @nature_africa @safari_park_dvur_kralove @conservationorg

#Regram #RG @natgeo: Photo by @amivitale With a heavy heart, I share this news and hope that Sudan's legacy will awaken us to protect this magnificent and fragile planet. Yesterday, Joseph Wachira, 26 comforted Sudan, the last living male Northern White Rhino left on this planet moments before he passed away. Sudan lived a long, healthy life at the conservancy after he was brought to Kenya from @safari_park_dvur_kralov in the #czechrepublic in 2009. He died surrounded by people who loved him at @olpejeta after suffering from age-related complications that led to degenerative changes in muscles and bones combined with extensive skin wounds. Sudan has been an inspirational figure for many across the world. Thousands have trooped to Ol Pejeta to see him and he has helped raise awareness for rhino conservation. The two female northern white rhinos left on the planet are his direct descendants. Research into new Assisted Reproductive Techniques for large mammals is underway due to him. The impact that this special animal has had on conservation is simply incredible. And there is still hope in the future that the subspecies might be restored through IVF.
In 2009, I had the privilege of following this gentle hulking creature on his journey from the snowy Dour Krylov zoo in the Czech Republic to the warm plains of Kenya, when he was transported with three of his fellow Northern White Rhinos in a last ditch effort to save the subspecies. It was believed that the air, water, and food, not to mention room to roam, might stimulate them to breed—and the offspring would then be used to repopulate Africa. At the time, there were 8 Northern white rhinos alive, all in zoos. Today, we are witnessing the extinction of a species that had survived for millions of years but could not survive mankind. Follow @olpejeta and @amivitale to learn more about how we can protect these magnificent creatures.

The northern white rhino has no chance😔 Sudan, the last male passed leaving no more males. They were not evolutionarily unfit. They just had the bad luck to share the world with us. Why can’t we do better?🤔 #rhino #sudanrhino #extensions #northernwhiterhinos #lowpoint

Current incarnation of this project. I used gouache for the rhinos because the palimpsest stamping went horribly wrong! 🦏 Not sure whether I’ll repaint the whole thing, or submit it as is... Painted on half-imperial #saunderswaterford
