  •  
    Its the worlds last white rhino and they have been on the earth for 50 million years in 1960 there where over 20,000 of them by 1984 there where 15. Today they put armed guards to protect this animals from poachers.
  •  
    Why are they not trying to breed these? instead they decide oh lets just put armed guards around them and not put them in a controlled breeding ground.
  •  
    Instead of watching them try and naturally breed, why are they not trying to collect materials so save these animals? (as stated by person above) They have the opportunity to obtain things necessary for artificial insemination and they don't seem to be taking advantage of that. Maybe instead of saying that there were attempts are breeding, but failed, they should do something about this danger of extinction.

    It seems weird to think that it could be legal soon to plan your own death...

    Well if they are already going to die, it's their choice. Obviously don't give to people who aren't in chronic condition. I personally would love to have this choice instead of waiting months watching myself die. They have a right not to suffer
