Photo by @amivitale. Bawa puts his trunk in Sosian's mouth. It's a gesture that is reassuring and comforting, like a hug or a handshake for humans. Both elephants are residents of the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e), the first ever community owned and operated elephant sanctuary in Africa. When little Bawa arrived, the veterinarian was convinced he would die. He was emaciated, dehydrated and scared. However, what the doctor wasn’t able to measure in the examination was Bawa’s fighting spirit, which helped him beat the odds and his big character, which has endeared him to everyone at Reteti, animal and human alike.
Undeterred by the doctor’s appraisal, the dedicated team lept into action to save Bawa. They worked non-stop for 48 hours, never leaving this baby elephant’s side.  It took many weeks of dedicated work. Even the elephants joined the effort. Once Bawa was strong enough to begin joining the herd out on walks, Shaba took him under her wing. Bawa was never without Shaba and Shaba was never without Bawa. Today, Bawa is a strong, healthy, big boy who loves to play with Pokot in the mud hole, where they like to tumble and pile on one another.

Sudan, o último rinoceronte branco macho, morreu em março de 2018. Extinções acontecem a todo momento na história da vida na Terra, mas com registro em foto não é toda hora 😓💛🦏 #inventorio #inventório #históriadavidanaterra #extinção #mamíferosamigos

Photo by @amivitale. A sincere note of gratitude to the editors at both @Time and @CNN who have named this photo as one of the Best Photos of 2018. It was a painful moment showing Sudan, the last living male Northern White Rhino left on this planet, being comforted by keeper Joseph Wachira moments before he passed away March 19, 2018 at @olpejeta conservancy in northern Kenya. To watch the last of something die is something I hope never to experience again but Sudan was surrounded by love, together with the people who committed their lives to protecting him. If there is any meaning in his death, it's that Sudan can be our final wake up call. In a world of 7 billion, we need to start recognizing that we are not separate from nature. When we see ourselves as part of the landscape and part of nature, then saving nature is really about saving ourselves.

@Time allowed me to write about this moment in "A Photographer Shares the Final Moments of the Last Male Northern White Rhino" - head to Time.com to read it and learn more about the meaning of this moment as we witness extinction right now, on our watch.
Follow @olpejeta @safari_park_dvur_kralove @nature_africa and others to learn more and get involved.
