Today, Mother Nature is a little less whole with the passing of the world’s last male Northern White Rhino, Sudan, who died Monday, March 20, 2018 at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya. I am deeply sadden by the event and my heart truly goes out to all of the keepers at Ol Pejeta Conservancy who cared and guarded for Sudan’s life.
We are so fortunate to be given the opportunity of living on this planet alongside many majestic species. Yet, I am constantly sadden by human’s display of greed and corruption, which has caused the number of species, particularly rhinos to fall dramatically.
In honor of Sudan, I created a few one line drawings and completed a few days before his passing.
