Meet Sudan, the most eligible bachelor in the world
Next time you’re on Tinder, you may just come across the cutest mate ever – and it’s all for a great cause: conservation and the environment.
Conservancy have partnered up with the dating app to launch a new campaign about the fact that white rhinos are majorly at risk of extinction.
The goal? To raise $9 million to protect this northern white rhino male from being the last by matching Sudan the rhino with one of the 17,000 potential female white rhino suitors around the world and to build up a viable herd of northern white rhinos via IVF.
Conservation is so important (despite what some certain politicians say…) because it’s about maintaining the world’s habitats and biological diversity as well as our resources and allocating them sensibly for us today and for our future generations.
And considering that there are currently over 16,000 endangered species, it’s time we did something about it…
Richard Vigne, CEO of Ol Pejeta Conservancy said: ‘this represents the last option to save the species after all previous breeding attempts proved futile. The plight that currently faces the northern white rhinos is a signal to the impact that humankind is having on many thousands of other species across the planet.’
The project needs financial support in order to support northern white rhino pregnancies to safeguard this endangered species but it also works towards providing assistance for the people who live nearby communities, like this one is East Africa.
Now, this is one swipe that’s a definite right for us.
