This morning, we gave Sudan, the last male northern white rhino, a fitting tribute in honour of his life and his great work as a rhino conservation ambassador.
In a short ceremony on Ol Pejeta, several speakers gave great personal accounts of their interactions with Sudan and his incredible global impact on rhino conservation. James Mwenda, gave a powerful speech on behalf of his caregivers and urged the world to not let Sudan’s death be in vain. The ceremony was graced by Hon. Najib Balala, the Kenyan Cabinet Secretary for Tourism and Wildlife and the Laikipia Governor, Hon Ndiritu Mureithi who both reaffirmed their commitment to supporting wildlife conservation not only in Laikipia but across Kenya.
The ceremony culminated in the unveiling of Sudan’s plaque at the Rhino Memorial by the Cabinet Secretary and the Governor.
Fare thee well Sudan. You have done your work to highlight the plight of rhino species across the world; now the onus is on us to ensure that rhino populations thrive across our planet.
