Sudan's profile tells a bit of background information about the rhino, explaining that he's the last male white rhino on Earth.And, when users swipe right and 'Match' with the animal, they'll be directed toward a page where they can make a donation.'I don't mean to be too forward, but the fate of the species literally depends on me,' the Tinder profile says.'I perform well under pressure.'The 43-year-old and his last two female companions are unable to breed naturally because of issues that include old age.
Richard Vigne, chief executive of Ol Pejeta Conservancy, says: “The plight that currently faces the northern white rhinos is a signal to the impact that humankind is having on many thousands of other species across the planet.Supporters impressed by Sudan’s profile on Tinder are directed through to a fund-raising page – – where they can donate towards the cause.Matt David, head of communications and marketing at Tinder said: “We partnered with Ol Pejeta conservancy to give the most eligible bachelor in the world a chance to meet his match.It's hoped that the campaign will help raise million towards breeding methods, including in-vitro fertilization, as Sudan and his last two female companions can no longer breed naturally.‘This represents the last option to save the species after all previous breeding attempts proved futile,’ said Richard Vigne, the conservancy's chief executive officer.“We are optimistic given Sudan’s profile will be seen on Tinder in 190 countries and over 40 languages.”The conservancy’s website had crashed by Tuesday evening.
