BioRescue: Developing Advanced Reproduction Technologies

for saving critically endangered mammals such as the Northern White Rhino

Support our Mission

The last two Northern White Rhinos left are both females - Najin & Fatu. To save these charismatic animals from extinction seems impossible under these circumstances. An international project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research aims to make the seemingly impossible a reality and is developing methods of assisted reproduction and stem cell research under the leadership of the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research (Leibniz-IZW). Find out more about the project.

Support the Northern White Rhino rescue mission

The BioRescue project is contributing scientific and veterinary expertise to the Northern White Rhino rescue mission. However, progress in research alone is not enough to prevent the extinction of these charismatic and important creatures. Well-coordinated cooperation of many committed partners in politics, nature conservation, economy and civil society is needed to give them a future. With your help the rescue mission can be a success!
