What do Indonesia and White Oak have in common? A veterinarian and a rhino!
Indonesia is home to one of the rarest species of rhinos in the world — the Sumatran Waresboro-GA adult matchmaker. For a few years, one of them, Harapan, lived at White Oak. There may be less than of them left in the wild, according to the International Rhino Foundation IRFso preserving the species is Waresboro-GA adult matchmaker. This is where our Senior Veterinarian, Dr. Scott Citino comes in. The reason for the trip was to collect and store semen from the two adult males, Andalas and Harapan, at the SRS.
Samples had been gathered in the past and banked but were poor quality low sperm motility, or movement so a slightly different technique was utilized during his last trip. They were successfully able to collect higher quality samples from these males. In fact, a sample obtained from Andalas was used to artificially inseminate Bina, the oldest female at SRS, after using new techniques in hormone therapy induce ovulation.
Sumatran rhinos are known to prefer some mates over others. Saving the species by assisting the Sumatran rhinos with reproduction was the best option to help usher in the next generation of these rare rhinos.
Bina may even be introduced to Harapan in the future to see if she prefers him! Did you know that veterinarians and wildlife experts are also experts in matchmaking? Right now, they are trying to pair Harapan with Ratu — a younger female that has had two calves sired by Andalas in the past.
Citino did not undertake this monumental task alone. A trip to the SRS is quite a long process which takes several days on average to complete. We asked Dr. Fourteen hours later I landed in Tokyo and waited 2 hours for my next flight to Jakarta, Java, Indonesia.
The flight to Jakarta is about 8 hours long and arrives after midnight.
From the airport, it is about a 2. The park helps to protect many other species of wildlife besides rhinos because they are a large, protected habitat. When asked what other species he saw, Dr. Citino, and the others Waresboro-GA adult matchmaker worked with at SRS, are doing their utmost to save the endangered Sumatran rhino and protect the park for the many species that depend on it for their survival.
We are proud he is a member of our team here at White Oak and that through him, we can do our part to save a species a world away. White Oak is a 17,acre haven for animals, people, and ideas located in Yulee, Florida. Keep up with our Newsletter! Employment Sustainability Menu. All rights reserved.
