When you adopt a northern white rhino you will receive a certificate, factsheets and photo of your rhino, plus regular updates on their progress.
Help our work with Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya to care for the last two Northern White Rhinos by becoming a Helping Rhinos Northern White Rhino adopter from just £5 a month.
A Northern White Rhino adoption also makes a fantastic gift for your friend, loved one, relative or colleague.
Northern White Rhinos – the rarest mammal in the world – are down to the last two members of their species. Najin and Fatu – mother and daughter – reside together on Ol Pejeta, after the death of Sudan, the last male Northern White Rhino who sadly passed away in March 2018. There were four Northern White Rhinos at Ol Pejeta (including a male, Suni, who passed away of natural causes in 2014) translocated to Kenya from Dvur Kralove Zoo in the Czech Republic in December 2009 and now the two females are the only known Northern White Rhinos left in Africa.
You can help care for the last two northern white rhinos by adopting them or adopt in memory of Sudan’s legacy by supporting scientific research into the continuing the species in a lab. The only hope of a future for the sub-species is a scientific breakthrough. Research is being carried out to find a way to reproduce a northern white rhino calf using in vitro fertilisation (IVF). It is not a simple task, and it is certainly expensive. Good progress has been made on developing the process, but it is estimated a further $10m is needed to complete the research and develop the procedures needed.
