Sudan, the last male northern white rhino in the world, died at the age of 45 in Kenya on Tuesday. Just two northern w—hite rhinos remain — Sudan's daughter and granddaughter. This majestic species has been all but wiped out by poaching, and may soon face the fate of the northern black rhino: extinction.
