The world’s last male northern white rhino died on March 19 following months of poor health, according to the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya. The rhino, Sudan, was euthanized following age-related health complications. Some of his genetic material was preserved in the hope that advances in IVF treatment could save the species. Sudan’s death leaves only two surviving female northern white rhinos. Credit: Ol Pejeta Conservancy via Storyful
