We're deeply saddened by the passing of 45-year-old Sudan, the last male northern white rhino.
Sudan, the last one of his species born in the wild, spent the last 9 years of his life at Ol Pejeta Conservancy (@olpejeta), where he lived with his daughter Najin and granddaughter Fatu.
In the last years of his life, Sudan has been an excellent ambassador for his species and has helped raise awareness of the plight of not only northern white rhinos but all wildlife.
This is a critical and sobering moment for human-kind. It is now our collective responsibility to ensure this never happens to another sub-species in our lifetime.
