Details

Ami Vitale recalls the exact moment when she truly understood how connected we all are to all of life on this planet. It happened on a cold, snowy day in December 2009, in the Czech Republic. It that day that she met a rhino named Sudan for the first time. This animal changed the way Vitale viewed the world forever.

“When I got so close to this gentle hulking creature, I recognised I was in the presence of a sentient, ancient creature. His species has been roaming the planet for millions of years and up until the last hundred years, there were possibly hundreds of thousands of them inhabiting the planet”.

Our human activity is taking down 1 million plants and animals, causing the sixth extinction event on this planet. This extinction event is different—it’s driven by humans and it’s happening at an incredibly fast and accelerating rate. These are personal stories about individuals who, against all odds are changing the destiny of the wildlife they coexist with. They remind us that we are a part of a complex world created over millions of years, and the survival of all species is intertwined with our own.
