The Last Three: Sudan, Najin and Fatu
I chanced to come upon The Last Three by Australian artists, Gillie and Marc Schattner while I was out taking pictures for the A to Z Blogging Challenge. I'd missed the announcement that the largest rhino statue in the world had been put up in Astor Place just a few weeks ago. Tragically, a few days after the statue was put up, Sudan, the last male Northern White Rhino had died. He is survived by his daughter, Najin and granddaughter, Fatu.
Rhinos are hunted -- to the point of extinction -- for their horn. Erroneously, it is believed that the rhino horns are able to cure a wide array of ailments. I highly recommend you visit the link for The Last Three. It has an extraordinary photograph of the sculpture, interesting information and ways we can all contribute to helping keep rhinos from complete extinction.
Dream well, dear Sudan.
