New Delhi: This is no bluff. Like most of the guys, Sudan, the world's last male white northern rhino has joined Tinder dating app after facing extinction threat.

Seeing the animal's deperation for a mate, Ol Pejeta conservancy has teamed up with dating app Tinder to raise awareness of how Sudan’s species is facing extinction.

Conservationists hope that Sudan will help raise enough money for $9milion fertility treatment - as all attempts to get him to mate have failed.

Sudan’s keepers fear he may be killed before they can raise the money needed for his treatment but if it’s a success - we may see more of these beasts walking the African plains for years to come.
