    Only Four Northern White Rhinos Left on Earth

    One of the last five northern white rhinoceroses in the world has died.

    Nabiré, a 31-year-old female northern white rhino, died of a ruptured cyst, authorities at the Dvůr Králové Zoo announced. Nabiré's death leaves only three females and one male left of her species.

    Because of poaching and habitat loss, northern white rhinos have been on the brink of extinction for years. 

    Out of the only three female northern whites left behind, none are able to carry babies due to uterine conditions or being past the reproductive age.
