LAST MALE WHITE RHINO NOW UNDER ARMED GUARD

The Northern White Rhino could be in very close danger of extinction as the last surviving male is now under the care of armed guards in Kenya’s Ol Pejeta Conservancy. This stunning species has been under threat from illegal poachers and the 43 year old male White Rhino is now the race’s last and final hope for survival. Different from Black Rhinos, the White Rhino can be differentiated by their larger heads and longer necks, and they also have a square lip in comparison to Southern White Rhinos. The Southern White Rhino has been a major conservation success (although rare in numbers) and can still be seen in Namibia – so we hope and pray for similar success in Kenya.
