Successful Egg Harvest Breaks New Ground in Saving the Northern White Rhinoceros. It is your chance to be part of making a Northern White Rhino!


Nanyuki, Kenya

 

In August 2019, a team of international scientists harvested eggs from Fatu and Najin, the last two northern white rhinos in the world, in a groundbreaking procedure. They were able to harvest ten eggs, of which seven were viable, and two were then successfully fertilised into embryos using stored sperm from two northern white rhino bulls (Suni and Saut). This extraordinary development is the result of the collaboration between Dvur Králové Zoo, Ol Pejeta, the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS), IZW Berlin and Avantea Cremonac.

They came back again in December 2019 and harvested another seven eggs, and were able to make another embryo, again using frozen semen. This miracle embryo, and the two from the first procedure, are now being stored in liquid nitrogen and will soon be transferred to surrogate southern white rhinos.

Today we are asking you to help Sudan’s legacy be fulfilled.

We made a vow to save his kind, and we want you to be a part of that promise. A donation to support the IVF process will ensure that one day in the future, northern white rhinos will once again roam freely in their natural habitat. Not only that, but the extraordinary developments in IVF may help a myriad of other species, themselves teetering on the edge of extinction, receive the help they need to flourish on earth once again.

Our goal is US$200,000, which goes to the efforts of the conservancy. Your support of Ol Pejeta Conservancy will make a world of difference.
