The Last Male Northern White Rhino

Sudan, the last male Northern White Rhino is not expected to be able to father any new calves. A recent article from the Mirror.
After 35-years in captivity Sudan is living out his final years at Ol Pejeta conservancy in central Kenya's Laikipia, surrounded by a team of armed guards. With his back legs weakening and his sperm count lowering the chances of Sudan being able to mount a female and sire more offspring diminishes daily.
