Save the Remaining Three Northern White Rhinos and the Future of the Species

white-rhino-by-steve-slater

Target: Robert B. Horsman, Chairman of the San Diego Board of Trustees, and Richard Vigne, CEO of Ol Pejeta Conservancy

Goal: Overhaul funding and plans to protect the remaining three northern white rhinos and ensure the reproduction of the species.

Only three northern white rhinos remain after Nola, a 41-year-old female, died in captivity at the San Diego Zoo after undergoing surgery for a bacterial infection.

The only three northern white rhinos left in the world, Najin, Fatu and Sudan, are at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya. The rhinos there live under 24-hour armed guard as the species has been wiped out by poachers who kill the animal for their horns and other body parts.

Najin, Fatu and Sudan are all elderly, and Sudan is the only male northern white rhino remaining. Researchers at the San Diego Zoo are working on developing northern white rhino embryos to implant into surrogate mothers in order to continue the species.

To save this species from extinction, everything must be done to protect Najin, Fatu and Sudan at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy and to speed up advances at the San Diego Zoo to help the species reproduce. Urge officials to delegate massive funding and create a plan to do everything in their power to protect and save this species on the verge of extinction.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Horsman and Mr. Vigne,

Najin, Fatu and Sudan are the only three northern white rhinos remaining in the world at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy after the sad death of Nola at the San Diego Zoo. Researchers at the San Diego Zoo are trying to save the species by developing northern white rhino embryos to implant in surrogate mothers.

Your organizations are the only hope to save this poor species from extinction. Everything must be done to protect the remaining rhinos at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy as well as to accelerate advances at the San Diego Zoo to help the species reproduce before it’s too late. I urge you to put in place massive funding and overhaul your plans to do everything you can to protect and save the northern white rhino species.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Rhinos are incredible animals! Everything possible MUST be done to protect these 3 rare animals.
    I have seen them as pets–extremely smart, affectionate with their human families, very funny and often bond with people just like cats and dogs.
    We MUST not allow this species to die off. Too much damage has already been done in such a short time to a species existing on this earth for centuries!
    Humans are the most destructive animals on this planet!
