In 2015 a group of scientists convened to discuss the imminent extinction of the northern white rhinoceros and the possibility of bringing the species back from the verge of extinction. A publication of this meeting is designed as part of the ongoing effort to raise awareness for the extinction crisis facing rhinos and many other species. Above, the northern white rhino is seen squaring up for a fight in Kenya. The northern white rhino is very uncommon, with only three living individuals left on this planet and could be considered doomed for extinction. But now researchers have proposed a road map for preserving such endangered species through techniques that use stem cells and assisted reproduction technology.
With the new methods proposed in this article, we could eliminate the chance of species extinction if the proper cell extraction techniques take place. If enough cells are found of already extinct species, possible re-population could even happen! Imagine the possibilities of cellular recovery if this method deems possible. This technique would open the door for so many branches of science and could lead to even more groundbreaking discoveries.
