Ladies, are you listening? The most eligible bachelor in the world, Sudan, joins Tinder
Nairobi, April 26: Sorry to disappoint you all ladies, looking for a prospective partner. Actually, here we are talking about the world's last male northern white rhino, Sudan, from Kenya. Sudan is an inmate of the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Laikipia national park, Kenya.
Yes, Sudan is alone and left lonely in this world. Moreover, he has the responsibility of carrying forward his "great legacy" -- to keep his species alive -- as he is the last surviving male white rhino in the world, according to wildlife conservationists.
Under such a dire situation, Sudan thought of joining the popular dating app -- Tinder. After all, all lonely hearts have found solace in Tinder. Isn't it?
This is what Sudan's Tinder profile reads: "I don't mean to be too forward, but the fate of the species literally depends on me. I perform well under pressure. I like to eat grass and chill in the mud. No problems. 6-ft tall and 5,000 pounds if it matters."
The campaign -- started by Ol Pejeta Conservancy and the dating app -- to help Sudan find his "perfect" partner is called -- The Most Eligible Bachelor in the World. Through the campaign, conservationists are hoping that Sudan's Tinder profile will help them raise enough money for $9-million fertility treatment as all attempts at getting him to mate naturally have failed.
"The 43-year-old and his last two female companions are unable to breed naturally because of issues that include old age. Ol Pejeta Conservancy and the app aim to raise the funds for research into breeding methods, including in-vitro fertilization, in an effort to save the species from extinction," stated a report by Associated Press.
"We partnered with Ol Pejeta conservancy to give the most eligible bachelor in the world a chance to meet his match," said Matt David, head of communications and marketing at Tinder. "We are optimistic given Sudan's profile will be seen on Tinder in 190 countries and over 40 languages."
We wish Sudan all the best. Hope, he too gets his partner and they live happily ever after. So, let's swipe right for Sudan. Swiping right on Sudan's Tinder profile will help to raise money for the rhino fertility research.
