epa05942593 (From L-R) Eighteen-year-old female southern white rhino Dauwa and the last surviving two female northern white rhinos Najin (27) and Fatu (17) are fed by a caretaker at Ol Pejeta Conservancy near Nanyuki, some 200 kilometers north of Nairobi, Kenya, 03 May 2017.

Experts say that even if the IVF techniques will be developed for the successful artificial reproduction in the future, the northern whites will most likely be extinct in a few years, for now. Ol Pejeta is a home to the last three surviving rhino subspecies on the planet.  EPA/DAI KUROKAWA

epa06229519 (23/30) Farm staff try to keep the three-years-old White male Rhino Wasinda, in the shaded area of his boma prior to being treated for his terrible wounds left by poachers at a private game farm in the Free State Province, Clocolan, South Africa, 19 September 2017. Wasinda, Zulu for 'Survivor' was poached two days earlier and had both his horns hacked off by a saw. After a closer examination it appears he was shot two times to the head by a 375 rifle with both shots traveling through his head. Most concerning for the vets was that Wasinda may have been blinded by the incident. South Africa has the world's largest population of Rhinos in the world. However over the past nine years a staggering 6,115 rhinos have been killed by poachers seeking their horns for sale to the lucrative traditional healing market in the Far East. In a ground-breaking and world-leading initiative, Dr Marias and Dr Glyphis from 'Saving the Survivors' race to injured and poached Rhinos once they have been called by conservation groups or private rhino owners in an attempt to save the animals and heal their often horrifying open wounds.

“L’ultimo rinoceronte bianco settentrionale maschio rimasto al mondo è morto in Kenya all’età di 45 anni”, dettano le agenzie internazionali del 21 marzo 2018. Il modellodi sviluppo intrinsecamente autodistruttivo procude il deserto ed effetti incalcolabili per l’equilibrio del mondo ricevuto in dono. Si comprende sempre più la profezia riportata al capo indiano Toro Seduto rivolto ai bianchi invasori: «Quando avranno inquinato l’ultimo fiume, abbattuto l’ultimo albero, preso l’ultimo bisonte, pescato l’ultimo pesce, solo allora si accorgeranno di non poter mangiare il denaro accumulato nelle loro banche».
