    Behold one of the pictures that won Matjaz Krivic the title of Travel Photographer of the Year 2022. Captured in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Nanyuki, Kenya, the poignant shot shows Najin, one of the last two northern white rhinos left in the world, resting in the heat of the afternoon with her caretaker Zachary Mutai. Krivic explains: ‘The northern white rhino is all but extinct. The two last males died several years ago. The two females are still with us, but [they’re] too feeble to bear babies.’ The photographer explains that the rhinos' eggs are now being artificially fertilised by sperm from the late male northern white rhinos. This is done ‘in hopes that surrogate rhinos from another subspecies can carry the northern white back from the brink’
