Ladies, The World’s Last Male Northern White Rhino Is On Tinder

November 8, 2017 in Daily Bulletin

Desperate times call for desperate measures when it comes to ensuring a future for Northern White Rhinos, wrote Thomas Page:

  • There are three Northern White Rhinos left in the world – two females, one male.
  • The one male seems to have given up on his species – he has been reluctant to procreate.
  • And so he joined Tinder.
  • It is part of a publicity stunt to raise the $10 million needed for invitro fertilization, to preserve the line of rhinos.
  • His Tinder profile includes the statement “I don’t mean to be too forward, but the fate of my species literally depends on me” – those that swipe right can then donate.
  • His general disinterest in procreation seems to appeal to the Tinder crowd. So many people swiped right on his profile that the donation website crashed soon after he made his Tinder debut.
