Demand for rhino horn fuelled poaching that has wiped out all but two female northern white rhinos.

Axar.az reports citing Al Jazeera that scientists in Kenya say the northern white rhino is one step away from being saved from extinction.

On Thursday they successfully carried out a ground-breaking procedure of harvesting eggs from the world’s only two surviving female northern white rhinos.

Sperm saved from the last living male northern white rhino called Sudan and a few others will be used to inseminate the eggs in an attempt to save the species.
