American model turned #Bollywood actress Nargis Fakhri has been actively participating in 'Save Rhino' campaign in Kenya. Nargis along with Khaledd Abol Naga, Egyptian actor, Human and Child Right Activist and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador visited the Ol Pejeta Conservatory to elevate the international awareness about the depleting numbers of white Rhino.

Only five northern white rhinos remain alive, and Sudan, 42, is one of the last three Rhinos left in Ol Pejeta. Two other elderly females Rhinos live at zoos in San Diego and the Czech Republic.

Nargis, who made a Bollywood debut with Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Rockstar and later appeared with John Abraham in Madras Cafe has previously participated in India's Project Tiger campaign.

Fakhri tweeted about 'Save Rhino' campaign and urged her 10 million followers to "not let this uniquely beautiful animal become extinct." Nargis Fakhri, meanwhile posted several pictures of hers with Sudan - the majestic wild Rhino, which has gone viral on the micro-blogging site.

On her career front, she is also preparing for small comic role in upcoming Hollywood film 'Spy' where she will share the screen with Melissa McCarthy and Jude Law. Rumours suggested that she would play an important role in a biopic made on cricketer Mohd. Azharuddin.

It's an alarming scenario for the Conservationists since the number of rhinos is depleting and none of the #Animals is capable of breeding naturally. Ol Pejeta is exploring artificial means of reproduction to preserve the species. The scientist and forest conservators are jointly working to increase the number of rhinos to prevent the species from getting completely extinct.

This was the last minute desperate attempt to save final five white rhinos.

A few months ago, Ol Pejeta launched a project called GoFundMe Campaign to raise money for the rangers in order to elevate the guarding of the rhinos from the poachers. A twitter hashtag #LastMaleStanding received attention of the animal lovers and global activists who are likely to join hands and work for the conservation. Animal right activists have suggested that Kenyan government should forge strategic linkages with communities, charitable groups and businesses to revitalize protection of black rhinos.

Christian Lambrechts, the CEO of Rhino Charge, a charity trust, stressed that active participation of key stakeholders has strengthened the protection of black rhinos can increase their number in their natural habitat. #Celebrities
