We visited the last two northern white rhinos, in Ol Pejeta. They’re both female. Fingers crossed science can give their species a second chance. #rhino#northernwhiterhinos#africa#olpejeta#olpejetarhinos#travel#endangeredspecies#globetrekkinggeek#alidiasafari2019

This bodacious young lady in foreground, Jamilla, and the well-built fellow she’s eyeing up, Zambezi, are two of the three resident white rhinos at @aucklandzoo The scientific name of the white rhino, Ceratotherium simum, means flat-nosed horned beast. Whilst the two large horns are features clearly associated (and earnt) by these marvellous animals, the flat-nosed aspect of their name is one of the key features that sets them apart from other rhino species, particular that of the black rhino, which lives on the same continent. The flat lip of the white rhino is ideal for grazing, and sharply contrasts with the hooked lip of the slightly smaller black rhino. As a matter of fact, the term “white” is believed to be a mistranslation from the Dutch word, “wijd”, which means broad, once again referring to the wide, flat lip characteristic of the species. Despite being the most abundant species of rhino alive today, the northern subspecies is critically endangered with only two individuals still alive (both female), with the last male, named Sudan, sadly passing away in 2018. Despite efforts to establish breeding programs in cap activity in the last decade, no northern white rhino calves have been born, even when males of the southern subspecies have been used. Sadly, the main threat to these animals today is poaching driven by Eastern demand for powdered rhino horn, which is believed to have medicinal properties, despite there been literally zero scientific basis for this belief to be held. With this in mind, avoid purchasing all rhino horn products, educate others, and support organisations that are crucial in the conservation of these incredible, critically important creatures such as the Lowland Rhino Trust Of Zimbabwe. Many zoos have changed their purpose in recent decades from places where animals could be used for spectacle and entertainment to hubs for conservation education and breeding programs. Still, one of the greatest things that ethical zoos do today is invoke awe and compassion for the myriad of remarkable animals we share this world with. #aucklandzoo#whiterhino#northernwhiterhinos#wildlifeconservation

Repost from @natgeowild 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. Our fate is linked to the fate of animals.

Posted @withrepost@natgeo Video by @amivitale | Fatu is one of the last two northern white rhinos alive in the world. Cared for at Ol Pejeta Conservancy (@olpejeta) in northern Kenya, Fatu represents the end of a species. She and three other northern white rhinos, including Sudan, the last male northern white rhino, which passed away in 2018, were brought to Kenya from @safari_park_dvur_kralove in the Czech Republic in 2009. We are witnessing extinction on our watch and must help them by speaking out and supporting conservation efforts worldwide, especially among the indigenous communities who are on the front lines every day fighting against poaching. The fate of these animals is linked to our own fate, and seeing ourselves as part of the landscape and part of nature is also about saving all of humanity.

Samice nosorožce bílého jižního Hope ze zoo v polském Chorzowě je suverénně nejl
Samice nosorožce bílého jižního Hope ze zoo v polském Chorzowě je suverénně nejlepší dárkyní vajíček pro projekt na záchranu nosorožců bílých severních. Potvrdila to i dnes, kdy se odborníkům z IZW Berlín podařilo odebrat devět vajíček a poslat je k oplodnění do Avantey v italské Cremoně. Tam se z nich pokusí vytvořit embrya, která následně pomohou při zdokonalování metody pro vložení embrya do těla náhradní matky. Jedině tak bude možné nosorožce bílé severní zachránit. Věříme, že v dohledné době budou vydána všechna potřebná povolení, abychom stejný odběr vajíček jako u Hope mohli poprvé provést i u Nájin a Fatu, posledních dvou zástupců nosorožce bílého severního, v keňské rezervaci Ol Pejeta a jejich vajíčka převézt do Itálie k vůbec prvnímu vytvoření čistého embrya. / Hope, female of the southern white rhino, is the best donor of eggs for the project to save the critically endangered northern white rhino of which only two last females survive. Hope confirmed her status even today when experts of IZW Berlin were able to harvest nine eggs and send them to Avantea lab in Cremona for fertilization. In Italy, scientists will try to produce embryos that will be used for optimizing a method for transfer of an embryo into a surrogate mother of southern white rhino origin - the only way how their northern cousins can be reproduced. Dvůr Králové Zoo believes that all necessary permits will be issued soon to allow the team of experts to conduct the same procedure that was done today with Hope even with the northern females Nájin and Fatu in Kenya - and consequently transport the eggs to Italy for production of the first northern white rhino embryos in a lab ever. @safariparkdvurkralove#izwberlin#northernwhiterhinos#ivf#rhino#rescue#zoochorzów#najinandfatu#hope#naturewillwin@olpejeta

We are witnessing extinction on our watch and must help them by speaking out and supporting conservation efforts worldwide, especially among the indigenous communities who are on the front lines every day against poaching. In a world of 7 billion, we need to start recognizing that we are not separate from nature. When we see ourselves as part of the landscape and part of nature, then saving nature is really about saving ourselves.

Important conservation news from the @we_conservancy ・・・ In 2018 we saw three bird species go extinct. These three were the Po’ouli, Alagoas Foliage-gleaner and Cryptic Treehunter, and the Spix Macaw. This year the vaquita and the Northern White Rhino are on the brink of extinction. In 2018 the last male Northern White Rhino died and the only two remaining are both female. Seeing species be eliminated from the face of the Earth is absolutely devastating. . . Different factors have lead to the decline and extinction of the species. For the macaws it has been deforestation, for the Northern White Rhinos it has been extensive poaching and for the vaquita it has been from being caught and drowned in illegal fishing equipment. It is vital that protections are put into place to protect even more species from being wiped off the face of the Earth.

Reposted from @karen_laurence_rowe_art - ❤️ How about showing a little RHINO love 💕 for Valentine’s Day? Honoured as always, to be asked by @helpingrhinos to paint this commemorative painting of Sudan - (the last Northern White rhino who died last year) as a way of fundraising - I came up with this watercolour. The money raised, will not only help Sudan’s offspring but also be used for the safekeeping of other rhinos on @olpejeta in Kenya too. If the preservation of the rhino species means anything to you, please visit the website www.helpingrhinos.org and buy this very affordable open edition print of Sudan done a couple of years before he died. The original of this painting will go up for auction at the Helping Rhinos upcoming event on Thursday 4th April at the Royal Geographical Society in London. (Please check their website for more details). Please do share or tag anyone who you you think might be interested in the print or indeed the event!

Fatu é um dos únicos dois rinocerontes brancos do norte vivos no planeta, após a morte de Sudan, o último rinoceronte branco do norte macho, que morreu de complicações relacionadas à idade avançada, em 19 de março 2018 no conservatório Ol Pejeta (@olpejeta), no Kenya. Fatu e sua mãe, Najin, são os últimos remanescentes de sua espécie no mundo e podem conter as chaves para se salvar a espécie inteira. Cientistas estão considerando fertilização in vitro para tentar salvar a espécie, o que significa que ainda há esperança. Em um mundo com mais de 7 bilhões de pessoas, chegou a hora de nos vermos parte responsável por sua manutenção.

WORTH MORE ALIVE // Repost from my friend @janewynyard I also have no words ❤️... I am proud to share this deeply touching film ‘KIFARU’ @kifaruthefilm, a feature doc film on the incredible people who are protecting the last northern white rhinos at Ol Pejeta Conservancy (@olpejeta) in #Kenya. It was made by my friends @ragtagtribe and @thatguyhambone and follows the lives of two young, Kenyan recruits that join @olpejeta rhino caretaker unit, as they care for and protect Sudan, the last male northern white rhino, and the last two females. With the northern white rhino on the brink of extinction, the two ranger recruits are mentored by a seasoned elder with an unorthodox approach. Spanning over the course of the recruits’ first four years on the job, ‘KIFARU’ allows viewers to experience the joys and pitfalls of conservation firsthand through the lens of the men that look into the eyes of extinction on a daily basis.

An adult White Rhino has no threat of predators due it its size, armoured body and large horn. Its only enemy is human beings. Poaching for their horns is leading to a decline in their population with some African countries resorting to cutting off the Rhinos’ horns to protect their lives. Sadly, 2018 saw the death of the last remaining male Northern White Rhino making the sub species functionally extinct. Today only 2 females remain in the wild.

Sending kisses 💋💋 to The last two Northern White Rhinos, mother and daughter, Najin and Fatu 'The Wonderful Two' created by internationally renowned artists Gillie and Marc. Sharing the love and the hope and the massively important conservation awareness and efforts of these majestic creatures. Balanced on the brink of extinction. The push and pull of safety. So sad and so unnecessary. #lovethelast#gillieandmarc#gillieandmarcart#wildlifeconservation#publicart#sculpture#motheranddaughter#extinction#northernwhiterhinos#love#kisses#hope

‘The Wonderful Two’ 🦏🦏 serves to remind us of the imminent extinction of the Northern White Rhino The last two (from what was once 40,000) Najin (born 1989) and daughter Fatu (born 2000) are now sadly, the rarest of animals on earth 💔 . With this monumental bronze art installation unveiled yesterday @republicastkildabeach Gillie & Marc @gillieandmarcart hope to use their sculpture to raise critical awareness of the plight of the rhino, as well as, funds to help protect Najin and Fatu in @olpejeta Conservancy in Kenya where 24/7 protective security is needed to guard against those who would kill the animals just for their prized horn . A brighter future for endangered species can only come about through the intervention and support of caring people. These animals need our help 😔 . #Lovethelast@lovethelast_official by Gillie & Marc is a worldwide art project, with the mission of bringing critically endangered animals to urban areas so that people everywhere can create a connection with them! . Why? Because loving animals is the first step towards saving them! ❤️ . ⏩ Swipe to see photos from the unveiling of ‘The Wonderful Two.’ More vids in my Story Highlights Thanks to #RepublicaStKilda 📍You can visit #thewonderfultwo on the promenade at St Kilda Sea Baths 10-18 Jacka Boulevard, St Kilda .

These animals are a mirror of ourselves 🦏 • • • • • • One of the greatest experiences of being in #Kenya, and of our lives, was visiting @olpejeta‘s endangered species enclosure, learning about the realities of extinction, and meeting @jemu_mwenda, a wonder of a ranger and the protector of the #northernwhiterhinos. Seeing through James’ eyes is believing. The upcoming documentary @kifaruthefilm tells it well: we are responsible for the critical endangerment of this species and have created catastrophic consequences. The poaching of #rhinos starting in the ‘70s, followed by regional warring, depleted the population to a dire degree. Right now, @olpejeta is home to more than 150 rhinos (two Northern Whites, mommy #Najin and daughter #Fatu, 32 Southern Whites and 122 Black). Through the determination, awareness, protection and resolve of this conservancy and it’s rangers, the biggest Black rhino sanctuary in East Africa is thriving. Meeting these #royalgirls and #Baraka, a blind rhino and conservancy ambassador, only further cemented that this is our global plight. If you want to donate, visit donate.olpejetaconservancy.org. Asante sana, @olpejeta and @jemu_mwenda! 🙏🏼

A powerful photo of 2018. Saying goodbye to a species, the very last MALE Northern White Rhino. Sudan, the last Northern White male Rhino in the world died last year💔.Due to poaching, they were kept under high security 24×7 . His daughter and grand-daughter are the only members of the sub-species left on this planet 🌏. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ @natgeo@discovery@wwf@animalplanet#animals#northernwhiterhinos#rhinos#animalkingdom#nature#wildlife

In 2018 we saw three bird species go extinct. These three were the Po’ouli, Alagoas Foliage-gleaner and Cryptic Treehunter, and the Spix Macaw. This year the vaquita and the Northern White Rhino are on the brink of extinction. In 2018 the last male Northern White Rhino died and the only two remaining are both female. Seeing species be eliminated from the face of the Earth is absolutely devastating. . . Different factors have lead to the decline and extinction of the species. For the macaws it has been deforestation, for the Northern White Rhinos it has been extensive poaching and for the vaquita it has been from being caught and drowned in illegal fishing equipment. It is vital that protections are put into place to protect even more species from being wiped off the face of the Earth.

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 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. Our fate is linked to the fate of animals. Shot by @amivitale 📸

I never realized how hard it is to find good monkey pictures without blatant dingus all over the place! I'm keeping it PG here, nature, put that shit away. And looking up rhinos is just depressing poaching and extinction. Rhinokey is a stud though, he can't help it.
