World’s Last Surviving Male Northern White Rhino Is Under Armed Protection Against Poachers

This is a very sad story! It’s not a story about the survival of one animal but the entire species! The species that, like many others is on the verge of extinction because of humans! We are talking about the North African White Rhinoceros. There are only five of animals of these species alive today and Sudan is the last male in the world! At the age of 42 he doesn’t have much time left. Even though he is the last surviving rhino of his kind there are still a lot of poachers who want to kill him for his horn!

Because of this, the Ol Pejeta conservancy in central Kenya’s Laikipia, where he now lives, has put him under 24-hour surveillance by a team of armed guards, and they have removed his horn to make him less of a target. Their main goal is to try and get Sudan to breed with Fatu and Najin, the two female rhinos at the park, but all attempts have failed so far. Hope is not lost however!
