The last male white rhino has left this earth... Sudan, we failed you. No amount of “I’m sorry’s” will ever be good enough. No amount of tears shed will ever repay you and your species for what we, humanity, has done to you and are doing to countless species around the world right now. It’s too late for you Sudan but you will never be forgotten, I promise you that. 🦏 🦏 🦏 🦏 🦏 🦏 🦏 🦏 🦏 🦏
@Regrann from @disunitythefilm - RIP – A Message To Sudan
Just like we know that our time in this world is limited, we knew that your days on earth would also come to an end. Still, when the message came through to say you were here no more, it was still somehow a surprise. We saw you only last month, sleeping in the shade, hiding away from the harsh midday sun. It was obvious that your time was coming to an end and even with the best medical attention, it showed us that no one can outrun death, not even being the last male of your kind.
On behalf of humanity, we want to say sorry;
Sorry for not fighting for your kind sooner,
Sorry for thinking we had more time,
Sorry we let you down and by that, sorry to the future generations of this planet who won’t be able to see your magnificent specie roaming Africa once again. .

Note: “Sudan’s death leaves just two female northern white rhinos on the planet; his daughter Najin and her daughter Fatu, who remain at Ol Pejeta. The only hope for the preservation of this subspecies now lies in developing in vitro fertilisation (IVF) techniques using eggs from the two remaining females, stored northern white rhino semen from males and surrogate southern white rhino females.” - @olpejeta
