Scientists in Europe Announce a Breakthrough to Rescue the Northern White Rhino
After the devastating death of Sudan earlier this year, this is the news we were waiting for. The first ever hybrid rhino embryo has been successfully created by a consortium of scientific organisations in Europe.
It is a huge breakthrough for the regeneration of the northern white rhinos. Using a southern white rhino egg and northern white rhino sperm, scientists have developed a valid embryo that has a strong chance of surviving to term. This means they have the technology and experience to replicate the procedure with pure northern white rhino genetics.
