We are so proud to announce that Kifaru won both the Audience Award and the Environmental Award at Full Frame 2019. JoJo received the award on behalf of the film & the Ol Pejeta rhino unit team. Words from JoJo:
“I am accepting the award on behalf of the entire team at Ol Pejeta Conservancy. We hope this award will help spread Sudan’s legacy and the importance of wildlife tourism for our families and for all of Kenya.”

Grateful for everyone in Palm Springs that came out to our screenings at American Documentary Film Festival this last week! And thank you to the @amdocfilmfest jury for selecting our film as the 2019 Best Feature Film! #amdocs #kifaruthefilm

Today a year ago we said goodbye to Sudan the gentle giant. The last male northern white rhino!!! The day was not easy but necessary to harvest and bank his genetics as part of the last resort of saving the northern white rhino from extinction.
In the last year we did not sit still but worked hard towards successfully collecting oocytes (eggs) and in December 2018 we had repeated successful oocyte retrievals!!!! This year we will continue with a new probe and push forward producing embryos.

There is hope for the NWR and keeping Sudan's legacy alive!!! #sudan #sudanfilm #whiterhino #savingrhinos #northernwhiterhino

One year ago we huddled around Sudan, the last male northern white rhino and said our goodbyes. We’re thankful that, one year later, Sudan’s story lives on through the lives of his caretakers and through the story we share in our film. • Long live the king (original music by @kevinmatley)
