Northern White Rhino Retired From World-First Breeding Project

Scientists attempting to bring back the near-extinct northern white rhinoceros announced Thursday they would stop harvesting eggs from one of two remaining live specimens involved in an unprecedented breeding programme. Citing risk and safety reasons, scientific consortium Biorescue said it had decided to retire the older of the two females, 32-year-old Najin, as a donor of egg cells for the ambitious project. This leaves Najin’s daughter Fatu—the only other northern white rhino on earth—as the sole donor for a programme trying to save the functionally extinct species.
