Northern White Rhinoceros Genetic Rescue

San Diego Zoo Global, in partnership with Scripps Research Institute and others, has embarked on an ambitious project to employ genetic sciences and advanced reproductive technologies to prevent the extinction of the northern white rhinoceros. Only two of these animals remain in existence and they are closely related and incapable of natural reproduction.

Budget  $10,000,000.00
Category  Animal-Related, General/Other Animal Protection & Welfare
Population Served General/Unspecified
Program Short-Term Success  Our goal is to use living cells to create stem cells.
Program Long-Term Success  We have safeguarded the viable cryopreserved cells of 12 northern white rhinos in the Frozen Zoo(R) and now have the opportunity to use these living cells to create stem cells and embryos to give the species a second chance at survival.
Program Success Monitored By  Program success monitored by bringing the northern white rhinoceros back from the brink of extinction.
