Original text on this topic:
Around 1970 zoos concentrated on white rhinos. Whipsnade and San Diego were sent 44 animals between them. Currently, both American and European zoos are close to saturation point. The white rhino breeds well in captivity, and there are 637 individuals in 207 captive populations.
[From 1961 to 1972 a total of 138 white rhinos were sent to zoos in the U.S.A. and 51 to the U.K. During the same period 298 white rhinos were sent to zoos all over the world which is roughly 9% of the 3150 rhinos removed from Zululand (Information from Ian Player) - Ebedes].
