A Glimmer of Hope for a Species: "In 2016 I spent several weeks in Africa with my long-time guide and good friend Njinu. During these weeks, Njinu shared a number of stories, but one in particular became etched in my mind. He told me about the last of a prominent species which was located in a private reserve in central Kenya. The story was tragic and it appeared to have a tragic ending—one that was soon to end in extinction. I couldn’t get it out of my head. I was heartbroken; here was another example of extinction at the hand of man.
Later that month as I flipped through a magazine in the Nairobi airport, I found a detailed article and learned more about the critically endangered species Njinu was telling me about. He was right, the last 3 individuals of a prominent species were being guarded in a reserve in central Kenya, but the magazine article mentioned something he did not—a glimmer of hope. A group of scientists wanted to attempt a new procedure that could potentially save the species by producing babies, but only if they could raise the funds.
In 2017, I went to the reserve and stood side by side with the last male of the species—to see for myself what was left but also to see if there was anything I could do. From all I can gather there is a glimmer of hope! I am excited to share this story with you in the coming months both here on social media and at our WALLS Signature Events.
