Northern White Rhinos – level 3

06-03-2018 07:00

The world’s last known male of the northern white rhino subspecies is getting worse due to his age of 45, which in human terms means that he is 100 years old.

The CEO of Ol Pejeta Conservancy said all they can do for Sudan the rhino is make life as easy for him as possible. Sudan lives at the conservancy in Kenya with two female white rhinos who are also the last of their kind. Scientists hope to save the rhino subspecies by using southern white rhinos as surrogates to carry northern white rhino embryos and give birth.

Difficult words: subspecies (a specific type of a species – animal kind), due to (because of), conservancy (an organisation which tries to help animals), embryo (a developing baby).
