Sudan is gone. We should mourn his loss as ours and feel great sadness that we allowed this to happen. How is it that we allowed a species to dwindle because of disregard to the huge threats these magnificent animals faced. That he was the last of his kind the Northern White Rhino should be a sobering thought and a wake up that we need to do more for other species facing the same fate, too many to count. That these giants and their ancestors walked the earth for more than 5 million years and that we have seen them decimated by exploitation and greed should be a source of great shame to us.
