Kenya holds memorial service to honour late male northern white rhino

Around 300 people gathered in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in the north of Kenya to commemorate the death of Sudan, the last male northern white rhino.

Among the attendees was Najib Balala, Cabinet Secretary from Kenya’s Ministry of Tourism, which organized the event.

Balala expressed in his speech that wildlife is a valuable asset to Kenya and the death of Sudan acts as a reminder that more efforts must be made to protect endangered wildlife.

Currently, there are 20 tombstones of rhinos standing in the conservation area, with most of the Rhino deaths caused by poaching.
