On July 2017, the British zoo declared that they will be trying IVF technology to save the species of the white rhino from extinction. So the breeding attempts between Sudan and the two surviving female species proved unsuccessful.
So the Scientists are working on the IVF techniques that might keep their species alive.
So many species are on the brink because of human activities. Hunting, climate change, voodoo magic medicine, fur trade. List goes on.
