Only 5 Northern White Rhinos Remain in the World

News of the death of 44 year old Angalifu‘s at the San Diego Zoo is certainly disheartening. He was 1 of the 6 remaining Northern White rhinos in the world. Even more saddening is that Angalifu did not mate before his death, and despite attempts to encourage the remaining rhinos to mate, they do not seem to be interested as well. In vitro fertilization seems to be the only future for the Northern White rhinos.
