  • 'Test-Tube Rhino' May Save Dying Species

    (CNN)Scientists have used in-vitro fertilization techniques to develop hybrid rhino embryos -- "test-tube rhinos" -- which could help save the endangered northern white rhinoceros species, according to a new study. The team was also able to extract stem cell lines from southern white rhino embryos, a closely related subspecies to northern white rhinos, which could be used to make reproductive cells such as eggs and sperm to create embryos. These techniques could become a valuable tool in the conservation of rhino populations, according to the research published Wednesday in the journal Nature Communications.

  • Why This White Rhino's Pregnancy Is So Important

    A southern white rhino named Victoria at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park is expecting. This pregnancy has the potential to save an animal essentially poached out of existence. Only two northern white rhinos, a distant subspecies, are alive; both are female but they cannot bear a calf. The last northern white male rhino, named Sudan, was euthanized in March. If her pregnancy through artificial insemination is successful, it could help the northern white rhino recover.
