Northern White Rhino Dies in Kenya Leaving Only Six Left in the World
Suni, a 34-year-old northern white rhino, died in Kenya on Friday leaving only six of the animals left alive in the world. He was the first of his species to be born in captivity and one of the last two breeding males. Though thousands of southern white rhinos are still alive, poaching in north Africa has left the species close to extinction. Suni was one of four rhinos involved in a breeding programme at Ol Pejeta COnservancy in the Aberdare mountain range.
