RARE RHINO ARRIVAL
In 1989, northern white rhinos were already considered one of the world’s most endangered animals, which prompted rhino conservationists to recommend establishing a second breeding site. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) chose the San Diego Zoo Safari Park because of its success in breeding southern white, black, and greater one-horned rhinos. One male northern white rhino, named Saut, and two females, named Nola and Nadi, arrived at the Park on November 15, 1989.
