    But the rhinos will have a tiny gene pool and will be horribly inbred

    The people who buy these rhino horns in the middle east are even more disgusting and vile than the poachers.

    What is the difference between a northern white rhino and a southern white rhino? They physically look identical, so I don't understand how they differentiate them.

    Totally not crying at this tragedy we have inflicted on the natural world. No. I'm not... Ok, maybe I am.

    It was believed for a while that a small number of these rhinos had eluded detection. Sadly that's not the case. Two truly is the loneliest number since the number one.

      They could and should , then just inbreed back to clean up gene pool, scientists never do the practical, instead they play around with their gadgets worth millions of dollars

    Those two are so beautiful and gentle. Thank you guys for not giving up on them and having hope. This belief in traditional medicine needs to die. The sooner it does, the better. People need the Congo, grasslands, and rivers for food and water. This belief has taken so much from so many, it's sad. However, not all is lost. There's still time and hope. People have been getting educated about the wildlife's importance, what they can do to help preserve, and much more. It's not just Africa that's been getting this, other places have been too. More and more people are now understanding just how important wildlife and the environment really are. People are cleaning up the oceans from plastic pollution, there's more forest now than there was 30 years ago, habitats are getting restored, conservation is giving wildlife a chance to survive and evolve, while at the same time, it's helping people have the resources they depend on. Have hope. Have faith. Together, we all can make a difference. The question is, are you willing to cooperate and listen or are you going to be selfish and not care?

    Unbelievable.... brought them down to 2?!?!?!? Thats really cruel... anyway waiting for the next videos on this. Humans, as its our fault, now its our duty to use all the brains we have to get them back. Hope science wins --> the IVF works and we get them back.

    It's just so incredibly sad that stupid humans think that rhino horn and elephant tusk is medicine when in fact its made of the same material as your fingernails and hair. I literally cried at the sight of the gravestones. I just can't believe how far humanity would go just for the sake of money...

    The name White is not correct since their color is grey, the word comes from the Dutch when they arrived in Africa during 1800 hundreds. the real meaning of the word is WIDE, not White and is because the lips of these rhinos are wide compared to the black Rhinos that have narrow lips that resemble a bird"s beak.
