Not All Heroes Wear Capes

The six southern white rhinos at the Nikita Kahn Rhino Rescue Center are part of a special surrogacy program to save their cousins, the northern white rhino, from extinction.

All rhino species are in trouble, but the northern white rhino has suffered worst of all. With only 2 left on Earth, they’ve been poached to the brink of extinction.
But we have a plan to save them.

Special Announcement

Two of our rhinos at the Nikita Kahn Rhino Rescue Center are pregnant!

Amani and Victoria are the first rhinos in our 103-year history to become pregnant through artificial insemination. Although Amani, Victoria, and their babies are southern white rhinos, this is an important first step, proving that the science is working—and that hope for the northern white rhino is at our fingertips.
