The Race to Save the Northern White Rhino There are just three Northern White Rhinoceros left in the world after a fourth died yesterday at the San Diego Zoo of a bacterial infection and age-related health issues. Nola, a female, had to be euthanized . Her species is the most endangered on Earth, and the San Diego Zoo Global Wildlife Conservancy is doing all it can to preserve it from total extinction.
