Photo by @amivitale . Joseph Wachira (@wachira.joseph ) receives a nuzzle from Najin, one of the last two northern white rhinos alive on the planet, at @OlPejeta Conservancy in northern Kenya. You may recognize Joseph as the keeper who comforted Sudan in his final moments on the cover of National Geographic. Today, he remains a keeper at the conservancy, caring for Najin and Fatu, Sudan's daughter and granddaughter.

Through all of this loss, a glimmer of hope remains, and the possibility of reviving this ancient species grows larger. An extraordinary team from from Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research (@leibnizizw ) #Avantea , @OlPejeta Conservancy, @KenyaWildlifeService and @SafariParkDvurKralove just successfully created two northern white rhino embryos from eggs extracted from the last two living female northern white rhinos. These embryos are now stored in liquid nitrogen to be transferred into a surrogate mother in the near future. You can help support this important initiative by donating to the @BioRescue_Project (Link in profile). @bmbf.bund @leibnizgemeinschaft @MinistryOfTourismAndWildlifeKE @natgeo @natgeoimagecollection @thephotosociety @nikonusa @photography.for.good #NorthernWhiteRhinos #nikonambassador #northernwhiterhinos #dontletthemdisappear #nikonnofilter #nikonlove #kenya #rhinos #saverhinos

When I first heard about Sudan a couple of years ago, I really felt sad for the rhinos, it really hasn’t slipped my mind to lose such magnificent animals, but now hearing that there is hope for rhinos, you really made my day. Thank you very much @amivitale keep up the good work πŸ‘πŸΌ ❀️
