Sudan – The Last of the Rhinos
He was born in the wilds of Congo, captured and brought up in a European zoo, then shipped back to Africa with the fate of his entire species resting on his shoulders. Between the time of his capture and his journey to Kenya, the northern white rhino was completely wiped out in the wild. Now, as the last male in existence, Sudan has been the subject of art, news features, documentaries and global summits. His extraordinary story, and what it means for other endangered species, will be told in a BBC2 documentary, Sudan: The Last Of The Rhinos, on Wednesday 28th June at 9pm.

Tune in, we’d love to hear your thoughts on Facebook or Twitter.
