Breakthrough work Near the North White Rhino Sub-Species Live Alive

Groundbreaking work in order to keep the almost extinct, in-vitro fertilization sub-type of the northern white rhino-population two-alive was halted. And time has passed.

The two white rhinos to the north are women. The aim is to build viable embryos in a laboratory by inseminating their eggs with frozen sperm from dead men, and then moving them to a substitute mother who is a more common south white rhino.

Three embryos were developed and stored in liquid nitrogen as of January. But now we need to wait for more main moves.

Richard Vigne, Managing Director of Ol Pejeta Conservancy, in Kenya, the home of two of the other rhinos, said: “COVID-19 has been disrupted like all other things.

“That is, the process by which females collect more eggs and the method by which the Northern White Rhino embryo is developed into Southern White Rhino females,” he said.

This is an international effort involving Kenyan, Czech, German and Italian conservationists – most of whom suffer from closed borders or restricted voyages.

The wait can be stressful for those with an extreme perception of time.

It has shown that the cycle to build viable embryos is effective, they add, and can routinely be completed before the animals get too old.

The transmission of embryos to substitutes was scheduled for next month in January. In March, the intention was for the other two females to harvest eggs.

Because eggs are limited, researchers can use SWR embryos until a successful pregnancy can be established. So far, seven or eight transfers have not been successful. A receptive woman and the knowledge of when she ovulates are necessary.

“It’s time we learn to work,” says Cesare Galli, an Italy-based in-vitro fertilizer specialist. “We have not many women to choose from and the women will grow old.”

In the next couple of weeks, he aims to relax constraints on international travel so that crucial measures can be resumed.

“It’s quite a serious problem,” he said. “It will definitely be the first priority to go to Kenya and to gather more eggs of the two women once international travel has resumed.

Another problem arises even if travel can resume. Ol Pejeta is also home to coronavirus-sensitive primates, Galli said. Galli said.

“If you accidentally bring in the virus, this is extra risk,” he said. “You are threatening to rescue one species.”

The two white north rhinos are waiting for now. In the sight of Rangers in the company of a destined substitute mother called Tewa, Fatu and her mother Najin walk around and graze.

Zachariah Mutai, one of the rhinos’ guards, was sweet.

“It will no longer be possible for them to have babies naturally, but the only hope is to save them by scientific means,” he stated.

The ultimate goal is to build a herd of five or more animals that may be returned to their African natural habitat. It could take decades.

The poaching of rhino species took decades to a heavy toll. The cattle are slaughtered for their heads, traditionally used for carving, which are associated for their supposed healing properties in traditional Chinese medicine.

In 2017, when he was entitled as “The Most Eligible Bachelor of the World” on the Tinder date-app as part of a fundraising effort, the last male northwest white rhino was a 45-year-old named Sudan. In 2018 it was euthanized by illnesses linked to age.

Vigne said that efforts to keep the North White Rhinos alive are a good way to draw attention worldwide to the question of extinction.

“The extinction rate of species on this planet is now the fastest ever recorded, much faster than the extinction rate of the dinosaurs, which is caused by human activity,” he said. “At the moment we must draw a line … and no longer ask.”
