The Red Drape is Removed from the Northern White Rhino
I am donating 50% of the profits of my photographs of northern white rhinos to Ol Pejeta Conservancy so that they can continue on their mission of protecting and fighting for some of the world’s most vulnerable creatures.
Following the second ever ovum pick up conducted on the last two northern white rhinos on the planet, a red drape is removed from the rhino’s eyes at Ol Pejeta Conservancy in northern Kenya. Her eyes were covered to keep her calm during the anesthesia process. She is one of the last two northern white rhinos on the planet. The rhinos, Najin and Fatu, are cared for 24-hours per day, seven days a week by devoted keepers. These men are on the front lines and a critical part of the tremendous effort being undertaken to revive this ancient species. An extraordinary team from Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research, Avantea, Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Kenya Wildlife Service and Safari Park Dvur Kralove have created five northern white rhino embryos over the past year and a half. These embryos are being stored in liquid nitrogen. The plan is to implant them in a southern white rhino surrogate in the near future.
Your purchase of this fine-art photograph of a northern white rhino will directly help those who have given their lives to care for the last northern white rhinos in the world. See all northern white rhino photographs available here.
