But can't they clone him?

And they do have frozen white rhino sperm and eggs, so can't the do in vitro fertilization?

It is very sad.

It is sad, however, as Tink suggested, they have collected sperm and DNA samples for possible future reproduction of this great animal!

In addition, since Sudan was the last male white rhino, his genetic material was collected. “This provides hope for future attempts at reproduction of northern white  rhinos through advanced cellular technologies.

Sudan the rhino is dead. But his sperm could save the species | Helen ...

It's a tragedy. 

I wonder if a clone would have a higher libido?

Perhaps they should let it consume it's own horn. 

I hear it's considered an aphrodisiac in Vietnam..
