(CNN)Scientists in Kenya found success once again in harvesting eggs from the only two northern white rhinos worldwide, furthering the initiative to save the animal from extinction.

The last two northern white rhinos -- Fatu and Najin -- are both female and have been living at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya. The last male, Sudan, died in 2018, raising concern that the subspecies was on the verge of extinction.
    The conservancy is one step closer to dissolving that fear after a team of scientists and conservationists managed to harvest eight eggs from Fatu and two eggs from Najin, it announced Tuesday on Facebook.
