Original text on this topic:
In 1892 the southern white was thought to be extinct but fortunately approximately 50-100 animals survived the cull in the Umfolozi Valleys. It is interesting to note that, although the current white and black rhino populations of South Africa originate from a handful of surviving animals, the gene pool is fairly diverse (E Harley, University of Cape Town, personal communication).
