Kenyan Vets Turn to IVF to Save White Rhino From Extinction

A team of veterinarians in Kenya’s Ol Pejeta Conservancy is trying to save the Northern White Rhino from extinction by using in vitro fertilization, or IVF. The last two Northern White Rhinos on Earth are living at the conservancy, but since they are both females they cannot procreate. Vets hope to fertilize them using Northern White Rhino sperm collected earlier to produce viable embryos. Ruud Elmendorp reports from Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya.
