This documentary is very interesting, educational and enjoyable. The film is about the Northern White Rhino in Kenya. I was unaware that there are only three left in the world and found that a bit sad, but amazing at the same time. It shows Sudan, the very last Male White Rhino and quite well known around the world because of his status. I was amazed at learning how Sudan is protected by armed guards. It made me happy to see how well Zack (a keeper) takes care of Sudan as if he is his own. This definitely is an enlightening film and made me want to research more about this species of Rhinos. The film is appropriate for ages 8 through 18 and I give it 5 out of 5 stars. Sudan was still alive when this film was made, at the age of 43. I thoroughly enjoyed learning about him. The sad fact is that Sudan has now passed away and hence, there are no more male White Rhinos alive. Hopefully, this show will teach children and, even adults, an important lesson about preserving endangered species. It is available on DVD now so, be sure to check it out.

This is the tragic story of the last Northern White Rhino who has survived against all odds, and how experts are working to save the rest of the species from extinction. Meet Sudan, the last male of his sub-species, the Northern White Rhinoceros. His harrowing journey is told through the international cast of characters who have been involved in Sudan's life, from when he was snatched as a calf from his mother's side in war-torn Central Africa, to his captivity as a prized exhibit in a cold, concrete zoo behind the Iron Curtain while poaching devastated his kind to extinction back home. Now at 43 years old and half-blind, Sudan is living out his days under 24-hour armed guard, on a protective sanctuary in Kenya. As his kind nears its last hour, scientists and animal experts turn to technology in a race to save the Northern White Rhino before it dies out forever.
