Last Known Male White Rhino Guarded by Armed Rangers in Kenya

International experts are trying to get the 42-year-old rhino to reproduce.

Richard Vigne, CEO of Ol Pejeta Conservancy, told ABC News that the aim of the relocation was to improve the chances of reproduction by having them live in more natural conditions.

Elaborate security operations are spread out on the Ol Pejeta Conservancy's 3,229-square-foot property, and officials are paying particular attention to white rhinos who are relatively approachable, Vigne told ABC News.

In addition to having armed guards and a team dedicated to the rhinos' well-being, efforts also are being made to prevent poaching.

“Because of the poaching crisis, one of the measures was to remove horns,” Vigne said. "Not all of it, but hopefully enough to reduce their attractiveness for poachers.”

“Declining state budgets for conservation in real terms, declining capacity in some areas and increasing involvement of Southeast Asians in African range states are all of concern,” according to the IUCN’s Red List of Endangered Species website.

“In Kenya, we have made progress in the last eight to 12 months and, touch wood, it will continue,” Vigne said
