Last Chance to See with Stephen fry and Mark Carwardine

Stephen and Mark update us on their quest to investigate the plight of the rhino for BBC2's autumn series.

Join Save the Rhino as Stephen Fry and Mark Carwardine update us on their quest to follow up the story of the Northern white rhino.

In autumn 2009, BBC2 will be airing the Last Chance to See series showing Mark and Stephen on their journey to find species on the edge of extinction. These species are the: Komodo Dragon, Blue Whale, Kakapo Parrot, Aye-aye, Manatee and the White Rhino.

The Northern white rhino lived, until recently, in Uganda, southern Chad, south-western Sudan, the eastern part of Central African Republic, and north-eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. However this has all changed and the Northern white rhino is unfortunately right on the brink of extinction due to poaching, civil unrest and corruption. Four individuals were seen in Garamba National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2006, but none have been seen there since, and no where else in the wild. There are 11 in captivity, in the Czech Republic and California, but they're not breeding.

On Tuesday 27 October Stephen and Mark will update us on their experiences in Africa. It is a desperate situation for rhinos so join us at the Royal Geographical Society in October to hear more about Stephen and Mark's journey.
