The extinction clock is winding down today for the Northern white rhino, one of the two sub-species of white rhinos. On Saturday, workers at a Kenya game reserve found Suni, one of two male Northern white rhinos, dead in his enclosure.
A rare birth in captivity in a Spanish natural park has brought a baby white rhinoceros into the world. The calf is of the southern subspecies of the white rhinoceros and mother and baby are doing well.
The White Rhino is on the critical list for endangered species. On Monday they took a big step towards being added to the extinct list. Poachers shot and killed the remaining female and wounded the male in a night operation to remove the rhinos horns.
