Last male northern white rhino passes away; only two females of species left now

In a major news for the wild life enthusiasts, the world’s last male northern white rhino has died.

It need be mentioned that this leaves only two females to save the species from extinction.

The rhino is said to be around 45-year-old and was named Sudan.

He had been in poor health since quite some time.

Sudan lived in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya, surrounded by armed guards in the days leading up to his death.

Researchers were able to save some of Sudan’s genetic material in the hopes of successfully artificially inseminating one of the two females left, it was said.
