These were random snippets of advertising, slogans, and short phrases from famous environmental speeches made by Martin Luther King, Chief Seattle and Paul Hawken, plus a few of my own, translated into many different languages. His photos show that we're changing the world in a way that numbers, statistics or government meetings can't do. Told in first person/animal from the rhino’s perspective the plight and hopelessness of the situation tugs at the heart strings as the rhino himself implores the reader to help and do more.

We must increase our fight against these wildlife criminals, both in Africa, as well as where their horns end up in Asia.Sudan was a perfect ambassador: He weighed more than two tons but had the personality of a golden retriever. This was the scene in March 2018, when Sudan, the world’s last male northern white rhino, was euthanised because of age-related complications. This book was no exception because it tells the story about a last white rhino who was captured and placed in a cage. All around him, for miles in every direction, the savannah teemed with life: warthogs, zebras, elephants, giraffes, leopards, lions, baboons — creatures doing what they had been doing for eons, hunting and feeding and scavenging, breathing and going and being.

Sudan spent most of his life at the Safari Park Dvůr Králové in the Czech Republic from 1975 to 2009. Sudan's publicity campaign won him fans around the globe, visits from tourists and donations for conservation efforts.

Nichola Davies was inspired by the story of Sudan and the great efforts to help other animals that are endangered as well.
