🦏#tbt In memory of Sudan 🦏the last remaining male Northern White Rhino who sadly died this week.
#tb to my own incredible experience of rhino caring @lewa_wildlife with Nicky an amazing blind baby black rhino. 🦏
Sudan was cared for 24hrs a day by devoted rangers @olpejeta & Nicky still is today.
Both rhinos have been huge leaders in conservation, thanks to the devoted & passionate rangers at both @lewa_wildlife & @olpejeta protecting & caring for these magnificent creatures.
The special relationship between humans & animals still has so much to be discovered in terms of communication and understanding. But it is clear to see how vital it was for both Nicky & Sudan, & continues to be for Nicky. "This week we have witnessed the extinction of a species that has survived for millions of years but could not survive mankind. Follow @olpejeta & @amivitale to learn more that we can do to #coexist " #repost @natgeo
