Kenyan scientists harvest eggs to save northern white rhinos

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.
