White rhino in the US
The remaining, three white rhinos live in the national reserve in Kenya. There is a small chance that people will be able to save this species and raise offspring, because there are only male and two females. However, this requires an effort.
The northern white rhino strenuously wiped out by man during the XIX and XX century. His horn and bone are used in Chinese medicine and as a decoration of houses of Arab sheiks. Despite the fact that the white rhino is brought in the Red Book, to date, it is the most expensive trophy on the black market from poachers. The price of its horns is up to several tens of thousands of dollars. Because of this, the white rhino is almost gone.
The situation is reminiscent of the almost complete destruction of Russian bison in the XX century. Until recently, they were thought to be extinct. In 1926 it was killed the last bison in the wild. However, through the efforts of state and private breeders, today their population is 1955 individuals.
