Poachers almost erased Northern White Rhinoceros species into extinction for there horn in the black market , A rhino at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya, is the last male Northern White Rhino on this planet. The issue is that Sudan’s horn may fetch more than $75,000 per kg (2.2 lbs), which is why closely armed poachers have virtually eradicated this species for a long time.
Fortunately, Sudan doesn’t have to face them alone – the conservancy has an experienced group of rangers that monitor the 90,000-acre private conservation area and work along side local law enforcement agencies as well. Their tools include GPS trackers, surveillance aircraft, and dogs trained to detect humans and security breaches.
At this time, scientists are taking into account artificial insemination or cross-breeding the females (of which there are 5 left) with similar rhino sub-species after which breeding the resulting rhinos again into pure northern white rhinos.
