Survived for millions of years but could not survive mankind…

Mar 22

Yesterday, Joseph Wachira, 26 comforted Sudan, the last living male Northern White Rhino moments before he passed away. Sudan lived a long, healthy life at the conservancy after he was brought to Kenya from @safari_park_dvur_kralov in the Czech Republic in 2009.

He died surrounded by people who loved him at @olpejeta after suffering from age-related complications that led to degenerative changes in muscles and bones combined with extensive skin wounds. Sudan has been an inspirational figure for many across the world. Thousands have trooped to Ol Pejeta to see him and he has helped raise awareness for rhino conservation. The two female northern white rhinos left on the planet are his direct descendants. Research into new Assisted Reproductive Techniques for large mammals is underway due to him. The impact that this special animal has had on conservation is simply incredible. And there is still hope in the future that the subspecies might be restored through IVF.

Today, we are witnessing the extinction of a species that had survived for millions of years but could not survive mankind.

US-Bangla Airlines Flight 211 (BS211/UBG211) en route to Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu, Nepal from Shahjalal International Airport, Dhaka, Bangladesh crashed on landing and burst into flames on 12 March 2018 at 14:18 local time.

The aircraft serving the flight was a 76-seater Bombardier Dash 8 Q400. There were 67 passengers and 4 crew members on board; 51 people died, while 20 survived with injuries.

The aircraft that went down on was 17 years old, data from tracking website Flightradar24.com showed. It descended to an airport altitude of 4,400 feet (1,341 m) and then climbed to 6,600 feet (2,012 m) before crashing about two minutes later, the website said.

The Bangladeshi carrier, which launched operations in July 2014 with a slogan – “Fly Fast – Fly Safe”, operates Bombardier and Boeing aircraft.

If you could see beyond the waves on the surface, then you’d be able to tell what I think… If you could just pay attention to that voice then you’d know, what I think. #Udaan

Life is short, break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
