Abstract

Synopsis: The photo of a ‘dejected’ looking Sudan (last male Northern white rhino) and his subsequent death, made the extinction of a species a reality for many. The loss of any species is a worry to ecologists since each organism has a part to play in the food web of the habitat in which it lives. However, some species are key to that habitat and their loss could affect the stability of the whole ecosystem. The prose below highlights the importance of the rhino within its natural environment.
